A Plea from Freda, Please

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 you all had a good week! Freda did not. Apparently, she is still very sad that she doesn’t have a sponsor. She was really looking forward to one. Hopefully she’ll find herself one soon. She is a cute little bat, after all. In the meantime, Freda decided to write some more poetry.

Sad Bat

I’m a sad bat
I might even have to wear a hat
That would not be super
But I would have to be a trooper
It might fall
And then I would bawl
I don’t have a sponsor
Were they too busy winning an Oscar?
I wonder if they have a cat
I am a sad bat


Hopefully she’ll cheer up soon. There really is nothing more pitiful looking than a sad little bat. She wrote another poem when she was feeling a little more optimistic.

Super Bat

Who will be my sponsor?
This person will know I am not a monster
They will know I am Super!
Much, much more than a grouper

I am strong like Superman
I’m a girl, so I’m not Batman
I am not a bird or a plane
I fly as fast as a train

I am much better than a cat



Well, if that lovely poem doesn’t get her a sponsor, I don’t know what will. What do you all think?
