The fluttering sound of their wings
Go by in the night with other things
Diving after their dinner
Catching a tasty morsel is a winner
Bats only come out at night
And they dance in a gossamer flight
Their wings are light but strong
Sometimes their night flights are long
The bat swoops down to catch its meal
And in turn it makes you squeal
It comes so near
Do you want to hear
It brings me closer than I thought it might
Been feeling strange and not like myself now
These retrogrades moving at speed of light
Bowling me over like it was a plow
Not letting me move with usual grace
Just hoping I don’t lose my faith and trust
Wishing for room a bit of breathing-space
There are some things I’ll have to readjust
And maybe use a little Angel dust
What color is that?
Why do I have to take a bath?
Because you are dirty.
I said so.
Eat your peas.
They are good for you.
Why are they good for me?
Just eat them!
All day long
No matter what it is…it’s always
Why, why, why, why, why!
Just a short hop by boat from the island of Great Exuma
There is an island set in crystal blue water
I remember playing with the starfish
Finding giant conch shells that were
discarded by their owners for bigger homes
Walking through the jungle paths
Up a hill to the salt beacon that
Years ago used to be lit whenever the islanders
Had salt to sell to passing ships
The view was magnificent
I will always remember that view
I am loud!
I scare cats, dogs and babies.
I come in all different shapes, sizes and colors.
I really made a mess today.
I coughed and my insides went everywhere.
It was so funny!
You have to change me when I get full.
It might not hurt to give me a quick wash
once in a while. Just with a cloth.
If you stick me in a tub it would be a big mistake.
You need me…you really need me,
I am loud!
