Plight of the Bumblebee

I thought that I would never see
The bee fly into history
Insect both monumental and humble
The extinct instinct of the bumble
Changes forever the flower and the fruit
Effects the fate of plant and vertebrate
And the spin of the earth on her axis
Though we are unsure of exactly what the fact is
We know
That with a dying flutter
When the last buzz is uttered
When the last desiccated carcass blows onto the wind it once captained
When the coat of security we wore so carelessly becomes unfastened
We will wish that we had not been here to see
The disappearance of the bumble bee
