Honey, Please!

Bees please don’t go away.

We’ll find you a place to stay

Where you will cause less dismay,

Farther from where children play.

You’ll be safe there. I promise. OK?

I know that you may be

Feeling a bit uneasy

Due to the radiation from my EVO 4G,

Or the chemicals that some neighbor

Had sprayed by some cheap labor

For all those in airshot to savor,

But you must buzz on!

I fear for the world when you’re gone.

Our brains can’t beat your bee brawn!

Yet before you go, I’ll need some rent.

That honey you made looks heaven sent.

You may be a queen, but I’m just a peasant,

Who finds sweet honey to taste quite pleasant.
