An old beekeeper told me
about the Waggle Dance -
the shaking and stepping moves
bees make to map out
where honey can be found.
dance longer - the honey is further
dance head up - fly towards the sun
The old beekeeper told me
different species of bees
can learn each others dances
but, he said
they're all getting tired
as each year they need to dance for longer.
