On the sidewalk, I saw a Honey-Bee  

It was walking ‘round and ‘round, without delay.

I could tell it wasn’t right, his circling,

And I wondered, “Is this his final day?”


Later on, I passed by and he was dead

It was sad, but I found no tear to shed

But as a token of admiration I found some Vegetation

And there, I laid the Bee to bed.


Then I offered up some words, to him,

As if I was his family, or a trusted friend.

“Sleep well,” I very quietly said,

And if reincarnation sits upon your bed

Then choose a life less strenuous

One with bliss and far less stress.

My friend, you could even be a tree!

But for goodness sake, don’t ask to be a Bee.
