Honey - so sweet......


A table spoon of very sweet honey
The work of a few hundred bees
Over a few hundred or so miles
Tirelessly between flowers and leaves

And we cheated them so artfully
Burnt their hives to make them leave
And then looted their gold shamelessly
'Bee farming', so to say and speak

So when you cook, taste or lick the spoon
And in a another world of sweetness swoon
Remember the suffocating smoke and flame
That to an entire colony was a sad endgame.........

    Beautiful and thoughtful write. Very true said, for our requirement we burn the hives, and its their hard effort of many days, we snatch away and sell it among us. Very true said, mans lust is endless and their is no gratitude either. Loved reading each lines. Thanks for sharing with us.
    Honey is so sweet, but only after snatching it. (Report) Reply
