April 13, 2019: Honey Bees
Honey Bees

Listen to the buzzing of the bees,
a song intended to please
honey lovers around the world.

In her lifetime one bee
produces one-twelfth of a teaspoon
of honey,1
so show your appreciation
for her efforts
by having a peanut butter
and honey sandwich.

From one mating flight
the queen bee
stores a lifetime of sperm;
she lays 1,500 eggs a day.2

Let's make an effort
to save the bees.
