156: The Last Bee

The farmers gathered-in
their ploughed-up pleads
on the basis that
it is you who they feed

The UK defies
now sows “neonics”

Hurrah for the UK
Up the Great Brits

We have the seed power
to put bees to their death

Send in the pesticides
until no queens are left

Now privatise lost pastures
Builders plough the fields
Profit for Landowners
In for the kill

When Britain has poisoned
all Apis mellifera
not one buzz
in your local area

Embrace with love
the immigrant bees
We’ll need their hard work
to sow last hopes of reprise
