Honey Bee's Lament


I have written a Haiku-like poem, with a question and its answer. This is dedicated to the honey bee and its danger of becoming extinct.


The Honey Bee Asks:


Why am I dying? Butterfly answers.

Reasons are many, my friend.


Is it pesticides? Just part of the cause.

There are others more to blame.


Is it changing winds? Weather is a part.

You are used to calm climates.


Is it the wild bees? African bees harm.

More reasons than just a few.


Is it pollution? The wastes are many!

Man needs to clean up his act.


Is it the virus? The bees deadly strain.

You will need new medicines.


Is it tall towers? The antennae harms.

Your health is harmed much.by this.


Why must I now die? Your help saves the world.

Without you all will then die!


PLEASE HELP ME SURVIVE! I WILL SING OF YOU.

The butterfly bowed his head.

The bees are such great pollinators. Without them, we would lose so much. Your poem has expressed such good concerns, and now it is up to us.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The honeybee is an important part of our world. I just had to have cups of lemon tea with honey for my sore throat this week, what a difference the honey makes!
