HOW DOTH YOUR GARDEN GROW?
Behold the ever-present bee,
So how come few flowers
Have fruit in MY bowers,
My plants were missed unjustly!
Marigolds are turning out fine,
But cukes and “tomaters” have declined…
There aren’t enough bees
So pollination sees
Results abundantly and properly timed.
We hear that pesticides strike bees down,
Where little bees’ knees hit the ground…
Bacterial infection too
Has damaged the working crew,
While competition from hostile species abounds.
We humans have made our own mess,
Can’t spend enough money that nature resets…
Already made our bed,
Now sleep there one has said:
It’s too far gone to make proper redress.
