Honey is sweet and tea is black.
Come on in, darling, have a snack.
Honey, cookies, pastries abound,
sugars and candies can all be found.
Beatrice is the temptress of treats,
keeper of candy, seductress of sweets.
A dollop of goodness from the old honey pot,
Your sweet lovely neighbor, is not who you thought.
Bea Buzzes around the neighborhood,
it would seem as though she’s up to no good.
Cute and dainty and like the sirens sing,
yet do not go near, Bea has a nasty sting.
And unlike the honey bee that may sting but one,
Beatrice Ives is still on the run.
So, though she may show with sweet and snack
watch out, dear neighbor, for the knife hind her back.
