Being a bee
is a joy
is a pain.

Iím a queen
Iím a worker
IĒll gladly explain
Upon rising, Iím fed
by my royal attendants

Ií m up at dawn, guarding
the hiveís narrow entrance
Iím bathed
then I take out the hiveís morning trash
then Iím groomed.

Then I put in an hour
making wax,
without two minuteís time
to sit still and relax.

text by Paul Fleischman
