B’s – the flight of the bumblebee poem

 

B’s

Bees bring bounty,
black-barred bodies
blotched blond by
bedecking bouquets
Butterflies belittled by said bumblebees’
Better speed spreading stamen’s sandy seed,
see busy bees bear bristly baskets,
brushes storing blooming banquets
besides bee’s sides
besides, bumblebees’
sound-based strategies stimulate blueberries
shy seed sandstorms sent scuzzing,
simply, solely by such bees buzzing

Some believe bees soaring sends science skiving
shouldn’t be breeze-sailing but skydiving.
Scientists say B.S..
Sure, some solving sums simplified
set bees stationary, such bees subside
but bees buzz: showing super-speed beats
sustaining soaring by spiralling breeze.

Sadly, speaking sustainably
some bee species become seldom-seen, samier.
Several blights strike simultaneously.
Blood-sucking bugs spread by beekeeper saunter
bearing still smaller bugs so swiftening slaughter
because bee-breeding brings samness bottlenecks
shameless siblings should seek balance by better sex
similarly studies see
beetle-slaying sprays bemusing bees

So, solutions?
Some suggest banning sprays, some suggest breeding strays
but silver bullets shan’t shoot straight
since several sources bring such states
so start by saving bees some space
because bees best buds supply bees better buds
banishing starvation, beauty so beloved
supplements stress busting steps,
supporting better species spreads,
so beleaguered bees soon blaze back strong
brazen bullets blasting bassoon-song
because blissful blossoms save bees
