KINSHIP LESSON 2

Rat to Bat: "Sir, up close you look like a rat. I"d like to call you cousin if you won't mind that." Bat to Rat: " No, impudent rodent, you're crass, denizen of the gutter without a touch of class. You creep while I swoop, you crawl while I fly. In evolution's totem pole you're low, I'm high. Im cousin of the larks, you're kin of the gnats. Listen: Angels are to humans as bats are to rats!"
