THE FUZZY BEE a poem warning of their extinction




THE FUZZY BEE



Does the fuzzy bee know

As she drinks the sweet nectar

Mother Earth has provided

That she carries the weight of the world

On her delicate wings



Does she know without her kind

We humans would perish

Taking her and all others with us

Into the black hole of nothing

Without a thought for the fuzzy bee



Does she know she is the regal Queen

On which all others depend

As she carries the pollen of life

Upon her tiny legs

Without a care



We need the fuzzy bee

But she doesn’t need us

She would thrive if we were gone

Taking the poison we spray on her food

And leaving her alone



We need the fuzzy bee

To thrive and survive

To nurture and heal

This wounded land we call home

We should be kinder to the fuzzy bee



- Staci-lee Sherwood
