Spoiler Warning! A mother tells her child that
she is lucky there are no scorpions in England. The scorpion's name is
Stingaling and he is a "most repulsive ugly thing". He has black
armor-plating and a long crinkly tail. When you see his tail move, run
away! "He wants to make a sudden jump / And sing you hard upon your rump."
Then the mother notices that the child looks tense. The child explains
that something is crawling underneath the sheet. It crawls up her leg.
Could it be the Stingaling? "It's on... it's on my bottom now! / It's ...
Ow! Ow-ow! Ow-ow! OW-OW!"
