Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
For Sammy — A Totally Terrific Tabby
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.
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.
