Dream of an insect

Farley the fly had always dreamed of living the life of a bee.  He saw them milling about and imagined that he too had a yellow and black body, large wings, and could make that wonderful buzzing sound.  One day while sitting on a leaf, he had a thought.  If I wish with all of my might, pray to the insect gods, and only think of it, I can change myself into a bee.  So, he began wishing and praying with all of his might.  He knew it would work.  He had faith.  Eventually, exhausted, he fell into a deep sleep.  When he awoke, he flew to the nearest puddle to see if his praying and wishing had paid off.  Sure enough, he was shocked to see a bee staring back at him from the puddle.  It had worked.  He was now a beautiful busty bee.  With that, he flew to the nearest flower and began to work.

Wishing and praying.

Wishing and praying.

Look out flowers, I’m a comin’

Look at me, I’m a bee.

I’m high on pollen.

Farley the bee.
