Darwin's Bees

Who put the scent in the flowers
That attracts the bees to the nectar
Put pouches on their legs that make them
Such a versatile collector
Who taught the bees the dance that directs
The others to the nectar
Despite the fact they travel far
And cover many a hectare
Who taught them how to turn
The nectar into honey
And us humans in their turn
Turn the honey into money
Without the bees to pollinate
There’d be no food to subsist
If bees evolved by accident
As Darwin’s friends insist
If there was one mutation less
Darwin would not exist
