The Dog Ate My Pollen

A snake-like line has  formed outside of a bee’s nest. A bee with muscles the size of acorns blocks the entrance with a towering golden scepter. Bees, exhausted from overwork, bumble about and trip over each other while jostling to join the line. Our busy Billy, also known as Worker 769, makes his appearance at the front.

“Worker 769, show me your pollen”, said the bulky bee.

“Uhhh the dog ate my pollen”, said Billy.

“You expect me to believe that? Come on, pal, we all know you were playing video games again instead of serving her majesty. You have no sense of responsibility. What purpose do you serve?” The bulky bee jabbed Billy with the scepter, pushing him out of the line.

Billy felt as if he had been stung and wanted to sting back, but he resisted.

“You know what? I don’t need this. I don’t need this colony. I’m going to start something of my own.”

He rubbed the dust off of his abdomen and prepared for take off. “And you’re lucky I don’t dump all of your precious honey into the nearby harbour as I leave. Humph!”

Billy buzzed away in search of greener pastures and better days.
