Bat

Bat

I have never seen
A more interesting being
One that frightens so.
Its leathery flying,
Of course I’m implying,
A creature of nighttime flow.

It is a bat.
Like putting wings on a rat
And they come in different sizes
Some large, some small
Though none of them at all
Are warlocks under disguises

I shall not dismiss this completely
My experience shows clearly
That wickedness knows no end
A clever disguise
No feign surprise
From bat to person whose bent

Still I love these creatures,
They share many features
That describe my life to a T.
Furry and cuddly,
Draped in something ugly,
Yes, that is what best describes me.

Hello authors! I go by Dorian T. Gray; it's my author name. I'm hoping that it can be a way to keep my legal self somewhat apart from my inner self so when I get to my destination I can live a somewhat normal, mundane-ish life... Well aside from the charities and other stuff that I hope to attend.

My aim is to present my work here in hopes that everyone will give me their feedback (critiques and encouragement) and polish me into a better author. I will strive to do the same. I think that we all have a chance to be great writers but we need each other to grind away the awkward and ugly parts and make our pieces shine.

Thanks for Reading,

D. T. Gray
