“Oh, Snap, my baby bumble bee,” I said, “Be careful, and beware, of what you pollinate. Be careful where you stop and be watchful of where you go.”
“Momma,” Snap replied, “I know what I’m doing; I can decide what to do and say.” And off he flittered once again to pollinate and stray.
Suddenly, a dark and ominous cloud overwhelmed the little Snap and sought out how to hurt him. He had a fury in is laugh.
“Snap!” the darkness called, “Come closer and listen clear. Over there (as He pointed to the old oak), yes, right there, is nectar sweet and clear.”
“Quick, Snap, go get your friends and show them you what more than them what life is all about.”
So, Snap flew off and found his friends. “Come one,” he cried, “I found the tree of life. I’ll show you I’m the best around, just follow me tonight.”
At sunset Snap called out to his friends, “Come on, let’s go, I’ll lead the way where the nectar is sweet and never bitter.” Their Momma’s begged them, “Please think twice before you go too fast.”
“Don’t worry,” they all called back, “Snap says he knows what’s better.”
So off they flew all the baby bumble bees with Snap leading the way. They flew and leaped from flower to weed and pollinated all the way.
Snap, the baby bumble bee, zoomed ahead until he found the spot where the dark and ominous cloud pointed to the old oak. Snap’s friends stayed close behind trusting Snap’s decisions. They huddled close and landed quickly.
Alas, it was all too soon that shouts of pain and agony rose up into the air and darkness threw his head back and laughed as all those baby bumble bees landed in the poison oak.
The moral of the story? Don’t follow anyone’s Snap decision before you investigate the story for yourself. Or, sometimes it’s better to listen to your Mother.
