about better bee-haviour

 

Yet another poem inspired by online conversations featuring great divides, political and otherwise. I speak the poem as a narration on the video. The words may be read below.

we could learn a lot from bees

we could learn a lot from bees
sharing pollen one, two, three

they work hard, as they must
in their fellows, they have trust

up and down & round they bumble
eschewing ego, remaining humble

they don’t argue, they don’t fight
they keep common goals in sight

we could learn a lot from bees
so pay attention if you please

we don’t need to snipe & plunder
laugh or sneer when others blunder

we could find some better ways
so everyone might have a say

on where to go, and getting there
on what to do, and playing fair

yes, we could learn a lot from bees
if only hell would cool then freeze!
