Bumblebees (dVerse Poet’s Quadrille Challenge)


Plant some flowers, and they will come,
and though they have a fuzzy bum,
curb your finger, curb your thumb.
Have another sip of rum.
Crack your knuckles, pop your gum.
Call your sweetie, call your mum.
Bake some brownies and have you some.

Sing a ditty, whistle, hum.
Play tuba ‘til your lips are numb.
Strum your cello, pound your drum.
Sand your chair legs ‘til they’re plumb.
Pat your kitten’s furry tum,
but as these bumblebees go and come,
to pet one would be really dumb!!!!!

For the dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille Challenge: bum. Two quadrilles on this one!!

      I realize my illustration wasn’t a bumblebee. It was a bee that perched itself for some time on my straw at a beachside restaurant in La Manzanilla. Unfortunately, no bumblebee has ever gotten this friendly with me.
