Pity for the Bees

I'm not a depressed person
But I woke up this morning
With a hope to soon join my ancestors
The dance parties with wine and finger food
In the clouds where no one could see
No police, no rules, no reason to stop
I'd feel bad for all of the confused bees below
Flying to their destinations
Working to be somewhere else
To become someone new
When I was right where I wanted to be

Flying around the planet
Billions of bees gathering honey
I'm the ant that has only one desire
To build something beautiful
A rising castle upon another castle
A place where the bees can't live
A place where only I can travel
A place where only others can admire
From a distance

Get your black dress coats ready
Gather your black dress shoes
Hats, gloves, and umbrellas
I'll be partying while all of you surround
This hole in the ground
Where my boring corpse lays
I'll look down from the clouds and smile
I'll look down and say
"Wow, look how many bees showed up"

I'll be drinking with Johnny Cash
Elvis Presley, Elliott Smith, and Bradley Nowell
I'd meet my great grandparents that I never
Had the chance to get to know
I'll tell them about my friends and family
And why I chose to leave so early

I pity the people that never find love
I pity those who never had the time
I pity the people behind work desks
I pity the people that never learned to love music
I pity anyone who isn't up in the clouds
Dancing next to me
To the sounds of the 1940's

I dream up a version of you
That makes me the happiest
I've ever been in my entire life

I'll rise if you shine
I'll get up out of my bed
And make the most of the day
And hopefully If I'm lucky
I'll be able to teach these bees
How to dance like ants

You should read at an open mic sometime =]

There's one at the Bridge Cafe on Elm Street in Manchester tomorrow night if you are interested!
