The Two Wise Bees

Scholars from AllIndia University are certain the claim made by AsiaWide_Acdemia.org concerning the location of a poem atrribted to Acharya Hemachandra is probably “a light-headed prank”. The post published on the AsiaWide_Academia official website has since been withdrawn, but a copy of the purported poem, “The Two Wise Bees” is circulating on several Facebook pages and is reproduced below.
Acharya Hemachandra (1089-1173) said Wikipedia “Was a Jain scholar, poet, and polymath who wrote on grammar, philosophy, prosody, and contemporary history. Noted as a prodigy by his contemporaries, he gained the title Kalikāl Sarvagya, “all-knowing of the Kali Yuga”.

To be or not to be,
Said the bee to the other bee,
Either I’ve to sting you,
Or you have to sting me,
We’ve been flying everywhere,
Seen things that nobody saw,
Swatters in every hand,
A blow after a blow,
One minute the chicken’s free,
Browning nicely in the sun,
The next minute it’s in oven,
Screaming loudly, “I’m done”,
The girl under the boy,
Squashed flat and overrun,
Choked already but has to say,
“Wow!!!, Aahaa!!! My honey bun,
I’m having lots of fun”,
Months of  bucking,
And more of sucking,
It’s really difficult to stand,
Then the man has a confession,
“I am faithful to my hand.”
The rich are rich and the poor are poor,
And never the twain shall meet,
If the poor to play the rich must pay,
But both are dragging their own feet,
The next to come is a money crash,
Wealth will wipe out in a flash,
But we are bees so what do we care?
They stole our honey and smoked us out,
Old and young, boys or girls,
They don’t hear us when we shout,,
So stinging me and stinging you,
Is the wisest we can do.
