What's In A Name
Who Am I
The humble bee, it seems, is me,
(Not the drone, but the Queen)!
Unselfishly I'll serve at tea...
Or pack a deadly sting!
I also was a Judge of old...
Held court beneath a Palm.
Steadfast to God, His wisdom told;
I was a Nation's mom!
Now, acting, singing, also art,
Are, too, my healing oil;
But, Cleopatra stole the heart
Of Aluminum foil!
