We call our interns “The Melibees!”
Using the brilliant poetry training that we received from Melibee speakers Will McInerney and Kane Smego, I wrote this as a way to express my deep gratitude for this team.
The Gratitude Waggle
Melibee stung the internet 3 years ago
But flew solo for far too long.
The sojourner needed a co-pilot. Or a swarm.
Then came the Melibees, waggling
To the rescue.
Carrying their backpacks to the peace hive,
And the Gen Y language of sweet honey and sticky culture
They transported the blooming idea into a buzzing youth hostel
A hive for creating, packing, pollinating.
On this Thanksgiving, I am grateful.
Not only for the history they create
But for the journey.
They are truly
the Bee’s knees.
Wishing you all a beautiful Thanksgiving with your hive!
