Bats!



 Bats, the acrobats on
Trees, heed no season during
Drooping for their sleep.

 Nocturnal bats, seem
 Birds neither nor animals, do
Their duties with fail nil.

Bats as cute nocturnes
Evoke drollery in diminutive
Eyes gaping at flaunting.  

Why do you squabble
 To grab mangoes, dear children?
Bats  leave dangling seeds only.

  3. Nice haiku. Here is an interesting information I read somewhere on bats. A single bat can eat more than 600 bugs in one hour, which is like a person eating 20 pizzas a night.
