I write what I feel…

Bees Don’t Sting…



Bees don’t sting –

for no-thing

but to protect them-

selves or the queen

they know if they do

sting you or i

they will surely die

committing suicide

kami-kaze, hara–kiri

and there’s the sting in the ta(i)le!

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

    So they’d be best not stinging we

    Nice one Denise

  4. ha. nice word play in that last line…yes, if they sting you they have to be fully committed….


  5. They have total commitment to their cause. Pity the same ‘sting-and-die’ rule doesn’t apply to warlike politicians.
    Mind you, it doesn’t stop religious fanatics.


  6. Ha, Col, I can think of many others who would also qualify…


  7. To bee or not to bee: that is the question. 😉
