Twas the Night before Christmas

Twas the Night before Christmas & all through the hive
Were 2 deeps of frames & a cluster still live.
The fondant lay on the inner on top,
Just on the chance that the weather let up.

Carniolans and Russians, Italian bees too,
(The Queen had been around, as some seem to do)
Took turns on the outside just to keep warm
On this, the night that our Savior was born.

Suddenly out in the yard there rose a great holler,
Twas Iddee himself, our favorite scholar.
With him was another beekeeping icon,
Rat, who’s advice, seems usually dead on.

The mites saw them coming & soon they did flee,
Looking for the larvae of new honeybees.
But soon came Tecumseh, who said with a drawl,
“I’ve got plans in the Spring for mites one and all.â€

“You see I’m from Texas, and here we will throw
A small hive beetle, mite smitin rodeo.â€
“You see,†he continued, (again with his drawl)
“We’ll train em to herd mites, hear that Y’all?â€

“They’ll put em in corrals, and when we get most,
Bjorn will drown em with surplus sucrose. “
“But wait,†came a voice that sounded like Perry,
He was up on the roof, a big sack he did carry.

“Beekeepingforums is our board and I wish us success
And hope you avoid all that CCD mess.
But now I must go and without naming names,
I must go distuibute some frames.â€

“On Old g3, on omie, on brooksbeefarm too,
Go Zulu, zookeep, and Big Bear (he’s new).
Beeks everywhere, everywhere, oh what a sight,
Merry Christmas to ll and to all a good night.â€

Happy Holidays All
