Honey Bee

 

your incessant buzzing irritates

we swish you away in anger

the field of flowers calls you

to constant, high speed activity

 

bee keepers of the past

knew smoke would slow you enough

to harvest the fruit of your labor

and we liked the comb

 

once, the fields were endless

your energy tamed the frontier

your work built a nation

and we reaped the harvest

 

now you batter your wings in a cubicle

we calm you with synthetic smoke

because the fields are no more

and we call you ADHD

 


Award-winning Author/Speaker for Children and Adults Deborah K. Frontiera
