If I Were a Bee

If I were a bee,

there would be so much glee.

I would curl up in a buttercup flower,

instead of being stuck in rush hour.

I would dance in the pollen,

without the dread of any problems.

If a bee were me,

excited, it would not be.

It’d have to learn how to read.

Yes indeed, it’d have to speed

from place to place

and worry about taking up space

with no time to wind down.

It would surely frown.

A bee wouldn’t want to be me,

but I’d love to be a bee
