The Killer of Bees

Have we so soon forgotten, DDT?
It's encounter with the Condor?
Now it's come time, to help the bee,
May be too late, while we ponder.

It began as a mystery, bees disappeared,
Lost from their hives, none were found;
Research shown, thought to be feared,
Pesticide's residue, left in the ground.
