“Neither the Honey Nor the Bee”
“Neither the honey nor the bee for me,”
As Sappho said.
(Though I think those are things are wasps.)
Swarming and scary,
Stripy and zipping about.
Don’t sting me!
(Don’t bees have hairy abdomens?)
Is the back yard safe?
Can I water the trees,
Or might I get stung?
(Where’s the number for the exterminator?)
Thank the wasps. Before I saw them, you were going to get the pessimistic post “Don’t Heart.”
