Reasoning

Once while resting, musing,
Mugging flowers, juggling clouds
I watched a bee taking honey
Bobbing up and down, suspended
Till his gorge was ended.

Flew a nearby hive
Did the weirdest little jive
Directions to a field of plenty
Shallow wiggles, a step, a stroll
And disappeared into a hole.

Then I pictured our spring of manna
Covered like flies on a banana
Eating piranha, making money
Sucking honey salvaging our source.
Without remorse.

It didn't seem reasonable to me that this gem was hiding on page 6 with no replies... Very nice, Sy..

Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:
For thou hast more of the Wild-Goose in one of thy wits,
Than I am sure I have in my whole five.

Nan,
You are to me a honey bee
Salvaging this part of me.
I offer you some honey free
In payment of your oversee.
And passing shadows was so kind
Even sunshine praised my mind.
I thank you all.
