Hale, Hallowed Honeybees




O sweet thrumming sisters,

Dancing, flying, dousing,

prospecting,

Cross-pollinating, nectaring and

housekeeping.

Such an orderly selfless society.


Pledging allegiance to thy Queen,

Her regal agile squadrons

Tending Mother’s heavenly Plant

Kingdom.

And in return, such delectable nutritious bounty!


Gold(en) oh honey, pungent,floral,

perfumed.

Sanctified shamanic antiseptics:

Cataracts, conjunctivitis, chills,

fever.

Vitamins, minerals mimicking human blood serum!

Elixir and panacea.


Sleep, dream, learn, respond.

Mathematicians, engineers, makers, defenders,

Quorum seekers, voters, workers,

citizens.

Sensitive, sad, loyalists, accurate frontline

indicators.


Pernicious manmade nerve poisons

abound.

Destruction, death, extinction.

Love thy Queen, Love thy Mother,

Or, worship thy “golden calf.”

Save our sentient humming sistren,

now or never!

Such a rich and powerful description of the Honeybee! Exquisitely intertwined with the brutal reality of their …. and our possible extinction.
