By Ann Privateer

In case you haven’t heard
Wing bats
Are really disguised dingbats
Well, sometimes they ping
Instead of ding in this electronic
Age of chirps and pings
And dings, unlike the human
Skeleton with wings, aka bats
Yes, the living creature, a bat
Not that thing made of wood
A ding from a bell might sound
Like a ping your cell phone makes
An alerting sound for only you
What is a wing-bat, on Halloween
They fly out from under the bridge
To find their haunted homes.
