Man's true friend

When one sees a bee that's flown
Only to hit the ground hard
It's tough to let it die there
Ouch! It stung my arm!


For Francine Roberts "Flowers, trees, grass or bees" contest
Also For P.D.'s contest My best pet or animal contest
Won 4th place

    I appreciate the compliments. I too have tried to change my style from the simple rhyme and lyrics, to senryu, haiku etc. It's quite invigorating and provides a worthy challenge. Robert
