Bats

From Animals, Friends & People

Neat, nocturnal ballerinas,
Graceful guardians of the night,
Acrobatic twilight Venus’
Soar and swoop in silent flight.

Insectivorous patrollers,
Sentries of the midnight skies,
Beneficial pest controllers
Squeak their guiding radar cries.

Helpful, harmless gentle creatures,
Victims of mythology,
Have fascinating facial features,
Are worthy of a eulogy.
