An entry in Fortnightly Topic Challenge #35: Restricted Title 1.

In the future, an ancient book of old proverbs in the form of haikus has been found, here's the transcription of the first page:

Flies haphazardly
so small but very scary
we flee from the bee

Have too many clothes
running late and nothing fits
tell me what to wear

Baby keeps screaming
now she’s falling asleep
please don’t make her yell

Client: I can’t login
Help: Is your caps lock on?
Patience: All time low

Blizzard in winter
Jump off roof into pile — ow!
Boulder under snow

After further examination it seems that another portion of wisdom has been hidden within. What does it say?


The last word of each haiku is "bee wear yell low snow," which gives the ancient wisdom "beware yellow snow."
