What Will Be Will Be


sang the bumblebee.
How true, said Mrs. Bee,
curled up on the settee,
drinking tea,
watching T. V.
Off he goes singing off-key,
what will be will be.

His work done to a tee,
returns home for his tea,
to find his honeybee
canoodling on the settee
with some Romeo Bee,
and on the T.V. is Kiki Dee
singing that sweet melody:
what will be will be.

He kicks the T. V.
throws out Romeo Bee,
calls to his hussy bee:
where is my tea?
I am going to sea,
where there is no bee,
to take the mickey
out of bumblebee.

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
