A Bumblebee Turns Gay

There was a little bumblebee
he went down on his bumble knee
and told the queen that he was gay
this message caused her much dismay

Some great inventions, I like lest all your steps a stumble be.
Not much of a thinker, that queen. More a spoil-sport.
wow. A persuasive personification...
Hi Hernert, This a great kick. I had to laugh out loud. Thak you so much for this moment of cheeriness, Paul
A Poet's Poet, brilliant Bard, and Lord of Limericks, you were, H....and so many of us miss you, myself very included...And it's around this time each year since 2012, that the memories of our many conversations, poetry sharing, and the chaos the 2 of us always managed to conjure up in the old PH Forum...tag-teaming up to oust the dreck & dross while still finding time to post the good stuff! Ole' buddy...I know you are still watching over your friends, and your beautiful soul mate who will never stop missing you. So, on your upcoming 3rd Anniversary... Herbert Nehrlich I will simply say, as you'd have it no other way...'Until we meet again & write again in that Golden Forum beyond space and time...Adieu, but just for now....Frank

Michael, please ask Sonja to be present when I pair up with Allan. Thanks for being observant AND helpful. H

i take this was this written on the 'fly'? charming and clever, Herb. i enjoyed it. Jake
This was done in response to the bumbling works of Sonja and Allan, two poets who fly much much higher than any bumblebee (gay or not) could ever hope to, H
