Some bees built their honeycomb high in a tree,
But the drones claimed they’d made the comb too,
So they all asked a Wasp who was wonderfully wise
If she’d judge what was false and what true.
That’s easy, said Wasp, Each make a new comb
And we’ll see if it’s equally sweet.
OKAY! said the bees. OH, NO! said the drones.
The Wasp smiled—for her task was complete.
MORAL: Claims are best tested by deeds.
