Bee's Knees

If bees have knees
They must be quite tiny
What about elbows
Or a cute tiny heinie?

And what about thighs
That end at the knees?
Do they ever wear shorts?
Are they hassled by fleas?

Now how about hair
Is it long and flowing?
Do they wear tiny parkas
When winter wind's blowing?

When one tells a joke
Do the other ones giggle?
Can they write with a pen
Does it look like a squiggle?

Do you know what scares 'em?
Do they have any fears?
When a bee friend dies
Do they cry honey tears?

    This is beautiful... just one thing has been borne on my mind about bees, 'They are BUSY' I love very much, the last line.. "Do they cry honey tears?"

    'Cry honey tears' ... Wow... There goes that imagination again... This is going into my favorites spot! It has 'must be read to grand children' written all over it!

    This is a lot of fun, all of these parts including Bee farts. Nothing like the smell of Honey in the morning.
