The Bumblebee Song

by Barry Louis Polisar

Have you ever thought to consider
What it might be like to be
A black and yellow fuzzy buzzing
Bumblebee like me.
I get migraines, I get headaches,
I get this buzzing in my ear.
Watch out you don't sit on me
And I'll watch out for your rear.

A four-winged hairy insect
Is what I'm meant to be.
People always run away
As soon as they see me.
Once I stung a little boy
(Afterall I am a bee).
The next day I broke out in hives;
I had an allergy.

Life's not all milk and honey
If you're a bee these days;
You get stepped on, you get swatted,
And shot at with poison sprays.
Splattered on a windshield,
Survivors are so few,
Runover by a lawnmower,
Or crushed beneath a shoe.
