The Tale of Tzar Saltan, (Flight of the Bumblebee)

Written by: Sandra Hudson

Swan-Bird; instruct me and pray ye swift
That I might show (Babs) as villainous
For he forced Father's self-abolishment to his beloved gift
Thrice- as insect- my revenge has proven venomous
So out of the sea- my flight becomes son-ominous

Aleksandr Pushkin's original poem
