Box Of Bumble Bees


Box of bumble bees
Bodacious! ! !
Beija Flor, fluttering away...
flip, flip, flip...
hound dog ahowling at the sly fox
ahowl...ahowl...
bark, bark, they say!
Red fox winks and runs away...
ahool...ahool...pant, pant, pant! ! !

Hold on you say...how?
I got the cold hold on...you say.
Save it for a sunny day...hold on...
You got to hold on one more day...

Boxes of bumble bees
And beija flor...
Flip, flip, flip...

    Not sure if there's any symbolism intended but it has plenty of buzzing howling flipping energy and is fun to read. (Report) Reply

And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
