Humble Bee

the humble bee

resides inside the heart of three;

the ogre, the fool, and the tree

the ogre who is strong beyond measure,

but who couldn’t think of any pleasure

but eating humans and hoarding treasure.

The fool who makes the crowds shout with glee

but never thinks beyond the meager spoils

of leftover meat and stalled mead.

The tree who outranks the three

lives to breathe

the rancid air

we do not need.

Held not in high measure these things we tease

selfless though they may be;

we think we are greater; Us Humans We Be!

but in the end we are the greedy

the unjust,

the selfish

the thieves.
