Here’s the finished mural I painted for Burt’s Bees. It’s on the corner of York St and Wynyard St, Sydney and will be there till 11 Feb.

Within the mural there is some of the foods that we couldn’t eat without the bees doing their thing. We need them bees! 🐝🐝 An Ode to the Bee Crew

There’s these little creatures we call the bees
Smaller than cicadas but bigger than flees

If you think them bees are just good for their honey
Let me tell you this mate, you’re not on the money

They do so much work which you may not know
But because of their toiling our foods do grow

Without those critters doing their pollinating gig
Then thirty percent of foods we eat would not be a thing

No coffee no banana no apple or cherry
Or pumpkin or lemon or even blueberry

No almonds or vanilla or grape or tomato
Or mango or peach or beloved avocado

Those or just some that I can remember right now
But you go have a look and it’ll furrow your brow

You can help right now by planting a flower or eight
Or mowing your lawn less could be kind of great

So in closing we should know that bees are great
And we should look out for them, they’re our little mates

The End
