Crazy at the Bat

Scientists have learned how a frightening creature survives on its unusual diet.

“Crazy at the Bat” — read by the author.

Those vampire bats sure are fierce-looking beasts;
veins and arteries they choose to pierce for their feasts.
They are able to thrive feeding strictly on corpuscles –
this helps them grow mighty wing membranes and muscles.

Once such a bat has decided to tag you, dents
show in your skin. Due to anticoagulants,
punctures keep bleeding. If this makes you shiver, cuss
almighty God for this creature sanguivorous.

Blood is low cal, rich in iron and protein,
but lacking in carbs – which perhaps makes bats so mean.
I love pasta dripping with pesto, whereas the
winged tetrapod vampire bat prefers plasma.
