The Beehive With Love - Poem by Aine Ni Leidhin

Drunken nights at the Beehive bar
The new ' smoke free zone'
In our vacation paradise
So close to home.

But the ban didn't last long,
Because promptly at midnight
All the ashtrays reappeared
as if recovering from
Stage fright.

And that hindered your stay
'Don't puff in here' you say
Think of your lungs
And all that poison;

But we carried on
In resemblances
To Dragons
And never once considered your fuss
Or any future consequences.

    A memorable event in which inhibitions were neutralized giving rise to free speech and the exercise of free will.
    The Beehive With Love sounds alive and humming.

    This is not very much in the way of creative writing or ideas. The story is unspectacular and forgetable. Therefore I can't recommend it.

    Laws enacted by idiots should always be obeyed by fools. Free will accepts consequence.
    Enjoyed this Áine.

    A controversial write about the does and dont's of our society,
    'The times they are a changing', but people are people, although they might not like the concept of smoking,
    They should also be aware of their own habits and the consiquence of them

    Love duncan X
