Homer on poison

"Odysseus... was looking for a deadly poison to smear on the barbs of his arrows.  The man would not give him any, for fear of the everlasting gods."  --Homer, The Odyssey (Rouse, W.H.D., trans.)
You hear that?  For fear of the Everlasting Gods.  That's why we leave poison to the assassins, kids.
