Never Mess With A Honey Bee

Once about a time,
There was a honey bee.
It lived alone in a hive,
That hung from a tree.

Below her home,
Was a mound of an ant.
And above it,
Was a nasty flying gnat.

Everyday the sun came out,
And warmed the beautiful land.
While the brave bee fought the ant,
As she courageously made her stand.

Meanwhile the sneaky gnat,
Tried to steal some honey.
To store it away like gold,
In a bank full of money.

The bee was wise,
To the gnat’s evil plan.
So she seek the help,
From her friend “The Man”.

Together they fought,
The gnat and the ant.
Because the hive the bee keeper,
Would never, ever relent.

Soon there after,
Many baby bees were born to her.
And neither the gnat or ant,
Made another attempt or stir.

A lesson had been learned,
To never fight a honey bee.
So a contract was signed in honey,
That all three did agree.
