BLUE BATS

Midnight blue
Midnight blue bats
The sound of
Them whistling though the trees

The fear in my heart
The excitement in my mind
The thought of all the vampire movies (blacula)

What should I do
Should I
Move
Jump
Scream
Whistle for help
Run
All of these things ran through my mind
But instead of doing any of these things
I just stood

Then thought about the song that
I would sing
When I was sad
Lonely
Crying
Sometimes even weeping

The song says:
What do you do
When you’ve done all you’ve can
You just stand

As I stood there
Mumbling the words
The bats just floated away into the light
