Bee - Poem by Rini Shibu

If you are sweet
the bee buzz around to steal
If you try to steal
the bees flies behind to sting
And You are the loser
in this ring

    Sadly yes, Rini, the bee is always there to buzz around whether to steal or to kill..
    A lovely poem. So cutely short.

    Bees may be sweet as they produce honey but if a bee takes you otherwise thousands come to attack with that bee. (Report) Reply

    Hi Rini,
    Sweetness may be a trap, as you say
    An invitation to the unscrupulous, to give a try.
    But it is always better to be sweet than bitter
    For, He has given us all, a sweet tooth.
    And, of course, my wife is so sweet
    She has got high sugar in her blood.

    Is it not better to give than to receive? (Especially stings)

    Do not- - No, Never! - - Try to steal the bee's honey or meat. Unless you are a beekeeper, and are well-covered.
    Cute poem about how the bee guards its honey with ferocity.
