Mama Bee Gets Testy

If the hive steams,
the honey wanes.

Mama Bee gets testy
when her sugar
doesn’t reach the throne..

So stop all that wing flapping
stirring hot air and deliver
the goods I can turn into gold.

I did a little research on angry bees, fascinating.

"wing flapping" without purpose helps none. So yes, stop it! ;-D

I love the tone of this poem.

Bees are a pretty fascinating study--love what you've done with the wing-flapping and the 'when mama's not happy, no one's happy' motif!
