In the heart of conversation blossoms another day. Franklin Doppelganger 07/31/12

Sting Like A Bubble Bee


To Bee or not to Bee,

An American Liberal dilemma,

Buzzing aloud Free Speech.

Where an American Conservative

Garden is wilting away a nation,

Without political pollination

That blossoms its diverse beauty

Within cultural enriched diversity.


Flip flops have bent their stems,

Flimflam fries things fragile to a crisp,

Leaving a wasted barren empty feeling.

Where 90% feels this 10% heavy gravity

Weighing upon a lone Perfect Rose candidate,

Where perfection mirrors only themselves.


No Bee dares tread there in a bubble.

Why those Rose thorns have razor horns

With sharp tips to deflate surroundings.

But a dew drop does drop moisture

With divine prayers it does pry things open

That within a closed Conservative veil,

A stagnating ‘n choking weed did prevail.


To Bee or not to Bee did delight in expressions

That perfection, can Bee a weed, needing rooted out.

That the beauty of imperfection be planted again,

When faults blossoms alight diverse conversations,

Where the observer is to Bee the judge

In what blossoms around their Beeing,

By pollinating this world whole in flaws,

Rather than a Perfect Rose Beeing

That will prick your unique Bubble Beeing.
