Damn the honey

Damn the honey

I never really contemplated
being friends
nor at this juncture
is it a viable consideration
of mine

over the years i imagine
i was conscious of you,
and that alone
is the establishment
of relationship

you stay in your space
and i stay in mine

i would prefer to maintain that status
if i could

you see,
whenever you came around
you visited upon me
an indelible fear
something about your winged fancies
and your ability
to dodge my concerns
intimidated me

whenever we had an encounter
i was stung
let with a remembrance
of the pain you have given me
and the possibilities of such a thing
whenever we meet

yes, in examination
i would love for us to develop
a mutual respect
and keen awareness
of each other
because the next time
you attack me
as you have done
so many times in the past
I will vie to kill
you and every one of your kind
should i have the opportunity

Damn the honey

this was written for all the Bee Stings i have endured over my life time.
To include Bees, Wasps, Hornets and all.
