The Lazy Bee

Contributed by softerware on Friday, 24th May 2019 @ 10:56:26 PM in AEST
Topic: StoryPoetry

Bumble held that he, was the royalty of bees.
The one who stood alone, above his fellow drones.
His pollen was a treat, the sweetest joy to eat.
He limited his toeses, to virgin petaled roses.

But a plague beset the garden; every single rose was hardened!
And Bumble flew for days, to find a rose unscathed.
Until he hatched a plan, to drink from soda cans
His private little stash, of pollen in the trash!

The queen had Bumble tried, the hive could not abide;
A lazy little drone, who struck out on his own.
Bumbles still alive; though banned from every hive.

The beekeeper lost cash, and put lids on all his trash;
And baby bees today, know that shortcuts never pay;
Cause honey isnít better when it tastes like Dr. Pepper.

I like this interrogative within the Bee hive.
The queen is the only bee that reproduces, and
as such, the hive as it is, works together as one to procreate. But, what about bumble, who is
clearly an outcast as far as the honey bee go?
Dr D Petkus was this director of biomedical research
when I was eighteen, he hired me.
He was a farm boy who had his own apiary.
So we humans are in someways similar to
the mr. bumble, in an all male worker bee world.
Cept we are not Apis.

I loved this.

More so than you know....
I/'/m going to send out a link to this.
I could see it as a children/'/s book. Splendid!

Nothing can reap rewards like that of a little hard work
Shortcuts like lies will always come back to bite you in
the backside in time.
Great way to have fun telling a very important life
