    Here is the accompanying verse by Brian Sibley:

    ‘A Cloud of Bats’

    A colony of bats is a ‘bunch’ or a ‘batch’,

    Lurking deep in a cave’s dark recess;

    But the naming of bats has a singular catch

    Which, with thought, is quite easy to guess:

    For, quitting their haunts, as night-time falls,

    They swoop and droop like a graveyard shroud,

    Squeaking their shrill, multi-decibel calls,

    And simply describing themselves as ‘a cloud’.
