One hundred million years on Earth There's no accounting for our worth Without our quite amazing powers there would be no trees or flowers The Earth would be a barren place No flowers to, your borders, grace No cereals to make your bread and keep your teeming millions fed We've worked our magic without fuss but now, it seems, you're killing us Your all consuming need for more has brought us to extinction's door Your pesticides have done their worst Our decline can't be reversed Because of them we cannot breed but you don't take the slightest heed When we're gone most plants will die and YOUR extinction will be nigh Without us to pollinate mankind will have sealed it's fate It's too late now, the damage done The end of 'Apis' has begun All life on Earth brought to its knees and all because you killed the bees

Dear Rob I have tried to reach you through the soupmail. Is there anyway we can connect with you and get a biography from you. My daughter really would love to use your poem for her project submission and we do need to write an entire section about the poet in it. Thanks a lot for writing such lovely relevant poems. Indira
