    While Fell was reposing himself in the hay,
    A reptile concealed bit his leg as he lay;
    But, all venom himself, of the wound he made light,
    And got well, while the scorpion died of the bite.

All men carry about them that which is poyson to serpents: for
if it be true that is reported, they will no better abide the
touching with man's spittle than scalding water cast upon them:
but if it happed to light within their chawes or mouth,
especially if it come from a man that is fasting, it is present

Talk no more of the lucky escape of the head
From a flint so unhappily thrown;

Hold, there is forty ducats. Let me have
A dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear
As will disperse itself through all the veins
That the life-weary taker may fall dead,
And that the trunk may be discharged of breath
As violently as hasty powder fired
Doth hurry from the fatal cannon's womb.
