Because we’re not afraid of new experiences, prepare yourself for Beehive Startups very first funding poem, TaskEasy Series B edition:

When Tasks Become So

Tasks are never easy 
but a time arises when every task becomes so. 
A homeowner, bereft of time, yearns for easy tasks 
though an unkind world cares not for the whims of everyday men and women.

A platform created, tech and tasks, climbs into the void. 
The air sharpens, touched by the sting of fresh-cut grass 
and everyday men and women work on while at home 
tasks are made easy.

On screens of glass, simple touches wield the power of hard labor. 
A brushing of fingers and a lawn is mowed 
a brushing of fingers and a blanket of snow is no more 
a brushing of fingers and tasks that burden the mind now rest easy and assured.

Once, twice, three times, a platform is funded. 
Once thought untenable, a threshold is surpassed and like a rising tide 
the world of tech and lawn care joins together, hand in calloused hand. 
The time for easy tasks, TaskEasy, has become so.
