about

Honeybees have long been noticed for their highly organized indusrious life. Only bees that live in community produce honey. Their monarchy is highly democratic in function, as new food sources are evaluated in a participatory structure negotiated through the tremble and waggle dances. They perform the shake dance to call for needed grooming when they becomes infested by mites or covered by other substances. Honeybees and other pollinators give life to many other creatures through their work in the fertilization and flourishing of flowering plants. Of the 100 crops that give humans 90 percent of our food, honeybees pollinate 70 percent, with some crops totally dependent on honeybee pollination. Yet, we systematically attack them through monotonous cross-country work performed year round pollinating large pesticide laden monoculture farms. Honeybees are a good analogy for the Holy Spirit given their consistent work in helping humans to flourish and bringing creations glory to fruition. When we play inappropriately with the Spirit’s gifts we run the risk of being stung either directly in a shocking and painful moment, or systematically in a moment leading to our death.

lyrics

Colony Collapse Disorder a song about honeybees

We dance to show each other where the flowers are
We dance to show from whence comes life
We love to find where all the colourful flowers are
We love to visit them, to take and give life

That’s why we dance
That’s why we tremble
We show with our waggle
Never needing to shake

And you you always understood
That we were the only way for you to be free
But instead you offered slavery,
Sickness, infestation and monotony
Don’t know if it’s the drugs or the drudgery
But we need something different we need something to change
And you you always understood
That you would die too, so why don’t you

Dance
Why can’t you tremble
Why won’t you waggle
We need to shake so

Why don’t you dance
Why can’t you tremble
Why won’t you waggle
We need to shake
