Bee & Honey

Today, on a theme of birds and bees.  Someone advised, the small white spider, pictured two-years ago, was a predator of bees.

####################################

Once upon a time

A very large bee

Was watched by a

Very pale white spider

That sat down

Beside him, or her

Whatever the case may be

The bee hoarded

All the pollen

Until its fuzzy body

Became quite swollen

For bees weren’t

Into sharing or caring

Bees were quite selfish

So, if you see a bee hoarding

It’s best to ignore it

As did the wise pale-white spider

Modern Suburban Fable #4

Mr. Finch fancied himself

A handsome man

Even though, he was

Nearly, seventy-three

Mrs. Finch had gone away

Gone away to work

Mr. Finch couldn’t wait

Mr. Finch was such a jerk

That all changed the day

Mrs. Finch came home early

Mrs. Finch didn’t find it funny

Took Mr. Finch for all his money

When Mr. Finch was caught

With some silly wench

He’d met at the DMV

FANCY BALI BELLY DANCERS (A Breakfast Table Fable)

detail_rice-krispies-cereal

It all started when
Lady Alice became bored
At breakfast one morning
There came a voice–quite plain
From her royal bowl of Rice Krispies
Perhaps she should have listened?
But instead–chose to ignore
Thought herself gone insane

The voice was persistent
She gave in to temptation
Listened to what it had to say
I’m compelled to mention–if I may
Said the voice–it’s only a suggestion
Bali belly dancers are what you need
Take heed, to brighten your day

Lady Alice put out a call
Throughout all the land
For belly dancers short and tall
Belly dancers came from far and near
Waited outside the palace doors
There were bellies here–bellies there
More bellies than Lady Alice had ever seen before
Some flopped, some fell–some couldn’t dance at all

Fancy Bali belly dancers
Proved to be a catastrophe
There was a real chance
Bellies would be the death of her
Take your fancy Bali bellies
Get out–be gone–she said
Let me rest my aching head
I’d rather be bored, than hysterical
From this frightening parade of umbilicals

Even when you’re bored–voices in cereal bowls should be ignored
