A Honey Bee Faces Extinction

Beware of the little honey bee

flitting from flower to flower
if captured bare handed

it will release its stinger
causing pain with some swelling.

A little saliva and mud
will ease the hurt

and the honey bee
will lose its life

in his effort to protect
the hive from intruders

but left unmolested the bee
and his crew serve their queen.

Some attend the larva
while others go out

gather the nectar
to make into honey

deep inside the hive.
