Bee’s Knees #Haiku #Poetry

A haiku written by Lee Sonogan

The bee's knees - Drawception

The origin of this expression is largely unknown, although there are a number of theories. Some people believe that it is a reference to the fact that bees carry pollen in sacks on their knees, and that the expression, therefore, alludes to this concentrated goodness. –

Sticking of honey,

The height/heart of excellence.

Just bend at the knee…

According to The Guardian, some believe that the “bee’s knees” derives from a shortening of “the be-all and the end-all of everything” which was shortened to “the B’s and E’s” and thus to “bee’s knees”; while another camp believes it derives from “it’s the business”.
