Battywampus on Purpose

And then some

several cute bats hanging upside down in a tree, one looking right at the camera

Calliopes capture catapults
and there they lay
all battywampus, without
wombs, tombs or wombats,
dingbats, clingbats, stringbats
acrobats, or spats even.
Oh willy nilly, oh hilly billy,
don’t be silly or frilly, or dilly.
