Story of Dog's Bee Stings Sets Readers to Buzzing

DEAR ABBY: In case you have forgotten, back in April 1988 you ran the following in your column:

DEAR ABBY: If you're not too tired of the bee issue, here's a little poem for you:

"The sex of a bee is hard to see

"But he can tell, and so can she.

"The queen is quite a busy soul

"She has no time for birth control.

"And that is why, in times like these,

"There are so many sons of bees." -- (Submitted, but not originated, by) JIM HARVEL, ARIZONA BEEKEEPER

P.S. Abby, this poem has been around for a long time, but I doubt if it has a title.

DEAR JIM: Let's call it "To Bee or Not to Bee."
