The Plight Of The Bumble Bee

Emergency – Word of the Day




The Plight Of The Bumble Bee

Carbon sucker punch
with chemical balm,
the bees are bummed,
dropping dead down.
It’s not just the honey,
there’ll be no fruit,
nature’s little cupid is caput,
the bee-eaters are thinning,
a global emergency is upon us now.

  4. Yep, we definitely have fewer bees this spring, Paul. My dog finds them a tasty snack which is depressing for us. Not for him.

    • Ah yes, the candy treat, dogs do love that, yes I struggle with the fact that govt and commerce were warned about this and yet we’re still persisting with poisoning the globe. Boggles the mind. Thank you.
