Vampire bats

What vampire bats crave
As they fly from their cave
Are any unwitting blood donors
With narcotic like thrill
They'll drink up their fill
And fly back home like drugged hippie "stoners"

    Thank you. Yes, I do smile when I get inspired to write a poem and my imagination runs wild. I have such a warped sense of humor. But it's all in fun. Too much exposure to Gary Larson's Far Side.
