We are known as hard workers. We have many jobs to do. We sweep and tend the hive. We look after the young bees when the eggs laid by our queen bee are hatched. We implicitly obey the orders of our queen. We have to move far and wide over the fields and gardens to collect nectar from flowers for the honey we make.

The lazy bees among us are known as drones. We grow impatient with them and kill them off, for we cannot support idlers.

Human beings are very fond of the honey we make. They sometimes burn our hive and steal our honey. We then fly around in great anger and go on stinging anything and everything in our path. People should learn a lesson to leave us alone. They should mind their own business just as we mind ours.’
