I was yet a beatle or a beegee
A beachboy or bonjovi
Or whatever you call a juvenile bee
When something stirred abuzz inside me
At the sight of a full-blown beauty.
But where I hived she was
On the same ancestral tree
And I could not reach her
For she was close to the canopy.
In time my wings grew stronger
And I realized I had to fly over
And beyond the fence
To find my honey.
