Ides of March

“Beware the Ides of March” - these were the words of the soothsayer to Julius Caesar in Shakespeare’s immortal play ‘Julius Caesar’.

I wracked my brain to come up with other things of which to beware.

Sadly, the list is short:

Beware of the dog
Beware of Greeks bearing gifts
Caveat emptor or “let the buyer beware”
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly they are ravening wolves" (Matthew 7:15).

What else should I beware?

Can't think of a single 'beware' saying.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"
