Bee God Stance (Mummify All of Them)

by George Korein and the Spleen

supported by


Mummify all the animals
In the dusk of your empire
When everything's on fire
When it's come down to the wire

Retrieve their brains via their noses
Pose their bodies in reposeful poses

Wash them in and out with wine
Salt them. Pickle them in briny brine
Give them their lives again without mistakes
Save their hearts from crocs and snakes

Mummify all the humans
When your hive is on the brink
When faced with colony collapse
It really makes you think

Encapsulate them in beeswax
The slavers who laid Nature low
Burn their money, reclaim your honey
Sacrifice them to the queen of queens

Aristaeus of Greece
Austėja of Lithuania
Bhramari of India
Colel Cab of the Maya
Melissa of Minoa
Mellona of Rome

All false. The true name of the one bee deity, the one true bumblebee-ity, is unpronounceable in human tongue, and can only be invoked by waggledance.
