The Last Worker Bee

One way of getting the rest of the world to pay attention to what you are saying is to put your words into the mouth a well-respected, preferably uber-intelligent speaker.  It turns out that Albert Einstein probably never actually said "If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live."  But that doesn't mean that it’s not true.

Queens and drones all gone –
the last worker bee brings sweets
to Earth’s farewell feast.
