The Bee and Jupiter
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     The queen bee of Mount Hymettus was proud of her hive. She had loyal workers and a golden treasure trove of honey. What more could a queen bee want?
 
2     If only humans would leave her hive and her honey alone, she could be truly happy.
 
3     "Men!" she snarled. "How I hate them! How dare they invade my hive! How dare they take my honeycomb! Honey is food fit for the gods. It was never meant for human use!"
 
4     The more she thought about it, the angrier she got. She buzzed with fury. That's when an idea came to her.
 
5     Honey truly was food fit for the gods. There was no god more powerful than Jupiter. Maybe the queen bee should pay a visit to that most noble of Roman gods. Maybe she would take along a golden gift.
