Drone Strike 8. Collyanna

      
When an ant applied for work      
at the Bee Hive, citing that       
her contributions to the colony      
went unappreciated, the drone    
in charge of Insect Resources      
scratched his goatee and said,      
     
Honeychild,      
you really should      
see the good in yourself      
---stop being so concerned      
with the buzzings of others
  < hive shaped stanza      
---do whatever it is      
that makes you      
and only YOU      
happy!
     
     
She took his wisdom      
deep into her thorax      
and returned to The Hill      
forever after seeking out      
the good not just in herself      
but in everyone and thing      
     
and was damn glad to be alive
