There once was a carpenter who was constructing a new hive for his honey bees. He was always fascinated by honey bees. They live such an orderly and well-functioning life. They are social insects that live together in large, well-organized family groups.
Honey bee colonies house worker bees, drones, and the queen. Each member of the colony has a definitive task to perform. And survival and reproduction take the combined efforts of the entire colony. Individual bees cannot survive without the support of the colony. It was a marvel of practicality and efficiency.
Unlike the chaotic society in which he and his fellow human beings lived, he thought, which is the model of a dystopian society.
Written for today’s Three Things Challenge, where the things are carpenter, dystopian, and honey bee.
