The Buzz Inside

I dive into a honeycomb
Buzz, Buzz, chant the bees
Wings flutter as fast as my heart pounds

    My gaze falls on the queen bee
      Her gentle smile welcomes me
        Taps me with her golden wing
           Now I too have wings

The true honeycomb is finally apparent
A factory, loyal workers
Laboring out of love for their queen
