A Limerick about bees or beekeeping.

Entrant ID:  1039854 Entrant Name:  Fiona Cook
Entry: There was an old queen bee from Swanbourne,
Whose colony decided to swarm,
They found a new home,
And filled it with comb,
So were lucky the weather stayed warm!
Result:  –

Entry: There once was a man from Tyne Tees,
Who decided to start keeping bees.
He thought he’d be cute,
And not wear a suit.
But he got stung everywhere bar his knees.
Result: rosette-red

Entry:  The Sting
“I’ve never been stung by a bee”
Said the ‘keeper in his apiary.
But a hole in his veil,
And an angry female,
Left his nose as red as a cherry.

Entry: There once was a girl called Bea,
Who had a hobby of keeping a bee,
Bee said ‘I’m a bit sad,
More friends would make me glad’,
So a swarm was introduced by Bea
Result: rosette-gold
