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!

Sweet nourishment as well

3. Far too many years ago, it was popular to name 
Daughters after movie stars...this one was friends 
With Elizabeth Taylor and sent her husband to console

Of her husbands death...amazing performance. 
But, Debbie Reynolds (Fisher), lost her husband
As Liz Taylor!!

    If this writing won a prize, then I can see why. Deborah was one of the more famous Judges of the Old Testament.
