Recycled from Facebook: Pipistrelle

A friend challenged me to rewrite Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat from Alice in Wonderland as a double dactyl.
So I did. Here it is.

Winkily twinkily
Soprano pipistrelle*
Up in the sky so high
What are you at?

Just like a tea-tray, you,
Flitter and flutter by:
Such a fine bat.

* Initially I had "tiniest pipistrelle: but that, it was pointed out, isn't a proper name. Soprana pipistrelle, a species of bat, is.
