Thorny yellow rose

Radiant as the sunrise

Shivers in the breeze

And summons with the wind’s help

Only the bravest of bees

Wiggle went the bee

As he danced on rose petals

With proud buzzing calls

His heart knew no fear, you see

He dreamt of making honey

Killer of Bees

Man’s future is sealed

When bees no longer buzz

Pesticides to blame
