Bats Are Creepy, Bats Are Scary, Bats Do Not Seem Sanitary

The Bat
By Frank Jacobs

Bats are creepy; bats are scary;
Bats do not seem sanitary;
Bats in dismal caves keep cozy;

Bats remind us of Lugosi;
Bats have webby wings that fold up;
Bats from ceilings hang down rolled up;

Bats when flying undismayed are;
Bats are careful; bats use radar; 

Bats at nighttime at their best are;
Bats by Batman unimpressed are!


  1. You've gone bats! lol...all adorable but my very favorite is the first pair, so cute!

  2. Yes, you are batty but in a good way-- thanks for the big laugh with the bat poem-- my husband adores them and he will really appreciate it! Very cute pieces. Happy Hallowe'en!!

  3. Thanks for this ! I read it in Mad magazine many years ago and had forgotten some of it. Your jewelry is fun, too !
