A Tribute to Bees

photo

Something’s happened

They’re rising up

The pollinative

Rebels

Are a buzzing cause

They are being

Forgotten

Waggling flags

Of yellow and

Black

‘comb the fields

Like

poppies

A fleeting Reminder

The battleground

Of blades

Of grass

Of Flower

The pollinators have

Mobilised

Against giants

And

Pests

The pollifactions

The Workers

The Queen

No longer divided

Take flight

In

Hexagon formations

They attack and

Sting

Buzzing anger sings

Loud

Their ecological ideas

Manifesto

Fall under

Concrete ears

Their nectar truly is

Nothing more than surplus

Their bodies

Their work

Their worth

Beautiful

Ignored

Who else will hear their buzzing fears?

Honey is sweet victory to industry

Industry is death to all else

    I loved the rhyme and rhythm of this statement. We are losing our bees and they have a right to be angry, ‘if’ I got the message correctly. Enjoyable.
