Fame is a Bee
It's a very poweful poem; the image of the bee and all its qualites vividly describe fame. Fame is sweet to have, bitter in after-taste, and transient in nature.It can please you and it can hurt you; but, it can naver stay with you.

I think his poem is about how fame can be good and bad at simultaneous times and also at different times depending on the situation. I think she is talking about herself being famous and then getting backstabbed by, her boss or someone she thought was a good friend of hers. This poem might also be about how, you might waste all of your time being rich and famous but, after all of the photo shoots and press conferences you figure out that you have not done anything with your life. So basically fame may be good while you have it but, when itís gone your either going to be sad or disappointed at yourself.
