The Rabbit & The Scorpion

I was speaking to a youngster who was being bullied by someone bigger than him and I asked, "who was bigger? The rabbit or the scorpion?" He answered "the rabbit"?. I then asked when the wolf hunts who would he pray on first the rabbit or the scorpion? He answered again "the rabbit" So I pointed out even though the scorpion is smaller than the rabbit the wolf steers clear of the scorpion. He knows the scorpion will sting him even if he manages to kill it. This is the same with bullies and predators on the street. I told the young man - "He must be the Scorpion"
