Winnie the Pooh And Some Bees


Winnie the Pooh and some bees.

Then he thought another long time, and said: “and the only reason for being a bee that I know of  is making honey”.   And then he got up, and said: “And the only reason for making honey is as I can eat it.” So he began to climb the tree.

He climbed and he climbed,and as he climbed he sang a little song to himself.It went like this:

” Isn’t funny how a bear likes honey?    Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!   I wonder why he does? “

Then he climbed a little further… and a little further… and then just a little further. By that time he had thought of another song.

” It’s a very funny thought that,if Bears were Bees,

They’d build their nests at the bottom of trees,

And that being so ( if the Bees were Bears),

We shouldn’t have to climb up all these stairs “.
