Who art thou fuzzy buzzy bumbling busy friend replete in striped pyjamas,
we should humble in thy presence be, thy busyness should charm us.
How odd it then the gentle hum of flapping wings does naught but to alarm us,
how odd it then we fear defensive sting as if thee intent to harm us
Oh let it be that ignorance fear be gone, let thy buzzyness disarm us
for thee it is to us abundance brings, for thou art natures little farmers.
Samuel at dVerse has us writing in riddles. Thanks Sam! And if you haven’t guessed, I am writing of frogs. No I’m not really, the beautiful image was to confuse.
The theme of the topic was inspired by the lovely
on her Facebook
message in which she requested a petition be signed, a petition urging Bayer
and Syngenta to drop their lawsuits against the European Commission. Read of it here – PLEASE DO DO READ – sign
the petition and save our bees from the greed of Big Pesticide. Charlotte
(A third of the crops we need require pollination by our insect friends – not just bees. We need them and not all insects are pests, some/many we rely on for our survival – and not just pollinators. Tis our children (probably not us – depends how old you are) that shall suffer the effects of future bad harvests and loss of insect life. Please sign the petition. Cheers!)
