This work has reached the exceptional level
Don and Donna discuss bells

Bats in the Belfry

by Aussie

Don and Donna swung back and forth
Their favorite tree for daytime warmth
The church nearby was filling up
Humans trying to fill their cup

The bells were tolling for mankind
Bringing parishioners faith to find
Don turned to Donna growling
Blasted bells, he was scowling

Now dear, Donna scratched
We have truly met our match
Bats in the belfry our nightly home
Humans sleeping while we roam

Humans filing out filled with wonder
Still the bells toll like thunder
Let us fly overhead said Don
Drop a gift where it will belong

Don and Donna flew that night
Dropped a gift during flight
Snorting with glee they flew
Teach those humans a thing or two.


It is said if you have bats in the belfry you are a nut case. I think these two bats were rather clever spoiling the white sheets with their droppings. Paying the humans for the racket the bells made in their home. I can't help rhyming!
