Freda’s writing poetry again…

Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a middle school student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted the wild colony for years.

Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a nice week. Freda is still a little sad. And a sad little bat is a sad sight indeed. She is jealous of the little Australian bat that is being sponsored by Johnny Depp. She doesn’t understand why no one is sponsoring her. So, on her behalf, I have decided to try one more time. I think I have found the perfect prospective sponsor this time. Ellen DeGeneres! Ms. DeGeneres is a very funny comedian who loves animals. She already works with animal charities. Now, she just needs to know about us! Freda is hopeful that Ms. DeGeneres will just love her as soon as she sees her picture.  In an attempt to make her even more attractive to a famous comedian, Freda decided she should write another poem. I hope she was trying to be a funny bat because if she was being serious…well, you’ll see…

If I Had A Sponsor

            By Freda the Bat

If I had a sponsor,
She’d know I’m not a monster.
She’d like bats.
And maybe buy me hats!

I’d share my mealworms.
I’m sure she’d like their squirms.
Mealworms are crunchy.
They are fun to munchy.

Yes, they are wormy.
They are very squirmy.
They are very tasty,
Even though their insides are pasty.

Do you think she’d like them?
Or would she rather have an M & M?
I hope she likes me!
I’m much cuter than a bee!!!
