Wisdom and the Bee

little honey bee
among the dewy flowers
thinking of a sting

wisdom enters in
do not be rash or foolish
she warns the small bee

stings can be deadly
although you're angered today
think before  you act

little honey bee
paid no mind to Wisdom's voice
stinging in passion

there lies the body
of the little honey bee
who ignored Wisdom

  1. Sadly, we do ignore wisdom at our peril.

  2. Bee goes for revenge
    Flies into orb-spinners web
    One more rash victim

  5. And the foolish bee had the advantage of hearing wisdom's voice BEFORE it was too late!
