Peony Bee-ony

Hey guys, let’s check out those blousy crimson pom-poms

Listen up flowers, arrange your petticoats; I can hear them coming

Blimey, so many skirts; where’s the gold then?

Steady now, take your time. There’s plenty for everyone.

So, now the imagery has your attention, is it biologically correct?

Well, the bees are not he-s, they are mostly she-s.

And the flowers are not she-s but both she-s and he-s.

Whoa – what’s going on?

Well, sex is key to survival

And nature has evolved many ways.

That diversity works is clear to see

And good news too for you and me.
