More studies explore how pesticides kill bees.  In some ways this is complicated, such as how chemicals behave once released into the wild.  But in the most fundamental way, it is very simple: poisons kill things.  No matter how safe people claim a toxin is, it's still a toxin and that tends to cause problems.  Here's another thing that's very simple: bees pollinate about one-third of the human food supply, including almost all the high-value fruits and vegetables. We are fortunate that many staples are wind-pollinated, but let's face it: if the bees die, a great many humans will follow.  So let's hope the idiot humans can learn faster than Coyote and his anus.

I have mostly finished the first round of poems for each prompter, but there's still a lot of stuff I want to write.  I have family obligations that will keep me away from the computer for most of next week.  So I'm going to try something new and just reopen this fishbowl as the mid-month activity.  

* It will have the same theme of "gender, orientation, and identity.

* I will keep writing previously collected prompts.
 
* If you did NOT prompt on July 4, you may leave a prompt when the fishbowl reopens.

* If you sponsor something already written by Sunday night, you may leave a prompt when the fishbowl reopens.
