Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


For Sammy — A Totally Terrific Tabby 

Totally Terrific TabbyWe have a friend who is a real Teaser,
As well as a Tabby cat and Cat Scout Troop Leader.
We think you know him…his name is Sam,
And he has a lovely mom named Pam.

Each Tuesday he shares a photo of an unknown location
Usually taken on someone’s exotic vacation.
He asks us to guess the city, state and country,
Which often makes our mom totally grumpy.

Sam’s friend SuzieQ cheers and berates us equally
While we rack our brains and search secretly
To discover where the photo was taken
And win some of Sammy’s precious stash of bacon.

Totally Terrific TabbyCat Scout Sammy is also the King of Bacon
But bacony gifts to us he isn’t makin’
He only gives out colorful badges for showing
That we are either clueless or all-knowing.

If you’re a fan of Thoroughly Poetic Thursday,
You’ll find Sammy waiting in his jaunty green beret,
For you to write a poem and share with followers of his blog,
Whether you’re a kitty, bunny, guinea pig or dog.

This week’s poetry prompt letter was a T.
That’s why we wrote about our friend, Sammy,
The famous Teaser Tabby guy, Cat Scout Troup Leader
And accomplished poetry writer and reader.
