Ain’t Mis-bee-hivin’ by Phil Burns

AnElephantCant hide his admiration for beeses
They are always such busy little buzzers
They can be Honey or Bumble
Or even Nocturnal
But he can’t tell one from ze uzzers

There are Hornfaced and Diggers and Leafcutters
And some that are known as Killers
You get quite a fright
In dead of night
If you find one of them under your pillow

 They are fuzzy and electrostatic
So the pollen sticks to them with ease
Then each interloper
Packs it into the Scopa
Which is usually situated down by their knees

What AnElephant likes mostest about beeses
Is that they too have a prominent proboscis
Plus two pairs of wings
And antennae and things
AnElephant bets you’re impressed that he knows this

Now bees serve a magical function
They are the greatest of all pollinators
Whether a pollen collector
Or just gathering nectar
Bees help more flowers than a swamp alligator

Some beeses are known as Carpenters
Perhaps AnElephant is being a bit daft
When they make that sound
As they buzz around
Are they Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft

    • AnElephant is very happy the sweet lady enjoys his trivia.
      And perhaps our world will be a better place when you humans adopt the social support systems of the bees?

    AnElephant has made me laugh
    You can talk about these as much as you please
    I love the sound of their buzz
    And the look of their fuzz
    All in all they are the bee’s knees

    • AnElephantCant avoid the obvious
      This is something his friend clearly knows
      But bees have such an array of limb
      He felt it beneath him
      To mention their knees and their elbows

        AnElephant gave me the giggles again
        I would go out on a limb this time
        And I would definitely sink so low
        As I am stupid you know
        But I just cannot think of a rhyme
