An Irony of Bees

~

She gives of her life

    For the sake of the hive:

Her goal gives meaning to life.

~

The hive and the queen,

    Both must survive!

This be the reason she’s alive.

~

No thought of the Self.

    No saving of Soul.

No purpose to reason the Goal.

~

There! so much    depends

    On Each Little Thing:

Each goal, each reason,   a purpose.

~

If one is

  what one eats

Oughtn’t she

    One sweet honey be?

~
