Honey

A wasp and a bee shared a spot in the sun.
The wasp had a question to ask.
“Oh bee, I’ve a question, it’s short and it’s fun,
Would you answer it here while we bask?”

“I know you make honey. Of that I am sure.
It’s simply what honeybees do.
So here is my question. Do bees all adore
Their honey in sandwiches too?”

“Our babies eat honey,” the bee then replied.
“It’s what all our larvae are fed.”
“But as to our sandwiches and what’s inside—
We adults like nectar instead!”
