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.

If you haven’t been writing poems on Thursday, don’t be shy. Step up now and give it a try. Thank you Sammy for giving us this opportunity to tap into our creativity. Sorry, it seems as if we just can’t stop rhyming.

This poem sure is terrific with a capital T! I keep intending on partaking in this poetry fun, but, though I love to write, I quite honestly find poetry rather daunting. We certainly don’t have your fantastic flair for poetry!

OMC! You wrote about ME! You made Mom get leaky eyes but what a FANTABULOUS poem you wrote and it just means the world to me that out of all the things you COULD have chosen for “T”, you chose ME! Thank you super dear friends. You really have made my day (Mom’s too). Your Mom is a really good poet you know……really!

Love and Hugs, Sammy
