You rush through our lives

Perched with hands
Black with unrefined oil
Choking back the seashore
The filthy stench of boiling tar
The honey bee says
We go the way of the dinosaurs
We’re taking you with us
We’ll always be bees
But you are zombies
This is a simple way to remember
Wake up or it is the end

Michael Baumgart

1. Do not kill bees, they aren’t trying to hurt you and rarely sting (because they die if they sting) chances are they’re buzzing around you because you’re wearing a bright colour and they think you’re a flower

2. If you see one on the ground, it’s probably not dead, try feeding it some sugar water or put it on a flower so it can get energy

3. Put bee friendly flowers in your garden so they have lots of pollen and maybe put a bee house too

4. If you have a bees nest in your attic/garden/shed etc, don’t call an exterminator! Call a bee keeper instead so they can be rehomed rather than being killed

Bees are very important and must be looked after! Without bees, humans wouldn’t survive
