Pussy poetry

Openly filched from the ‘Archers & Anarchists’ website. Thank you for this A and A.

Poems for a dead but much loved mog.

The 7th Sammy the Cat Memorial Lecture was delivered by most of those who attended the Annual Convention of Archers Anarchists held on Saturday 22 February 2014.  It took the form of numerous quasi “tweets”.  Some are recorded below, some are lost and some we haven’t got around to adding yet.

Sammy The Cat Memorial Lecture – February 2014

P1010120

For 17 years I slept on your bed

Then Captain appeared and you loved him instead.

Do you think of me much; am I still in your head?

Too late now, you old cow

Cos I’m effing well dead!    (Dave)

 

Being Sammy the Cat meant a life full of fune.

He had nine lives; Will’s dog – only one.

You were black and white just like a badger,

If Daveeed had the chance, he would have ‘ad yer.  (Pam Shelley)

 

From his furry feline heaven Sammy the Cat entreats his mistress:

“For Felix sake just leave it all to the Borsetshire Cats Home”  (Barbara Williams)

 

I’m white I’m black I’m Sammy the Cat

For 17 years I gave Peggy cheers

After my demise with tears in her eyes

My void was filled by Ben & Bill   (Adam Brown)

 

Here lies Sammy the Cat

Sorely missed and twice as fat.

His fate is known to all and sundry.

He was despatched by Wiwyerm Grundy.  (Sandy Brown)

 

Would Peggy’s money still go to Tom if she knew what was in his prototype sausage?  RIP Sammy  (Eileen Riley Arms)

 

@sammythe cat I remember you whenever my eye is caught by #kittenwithaballofwool.  Not much else to do except stare at the ornaments now Rob wont let me out of the house.  (Sue Brearley)

P1010156

Sammy th cat was a very fat cat

And Peggoi Woolley always wore a hat

Sadly Sammy’s mow not quite so fat

And Peggoi is a mad old bat  (Duncan Moore)

 

Sammy had to die as none of his previous bids for freedom from nauseating Peggy were successful.  This was his last and only other option! (Jill Cove)

P1000430

Oh, Sammoi the Cat,

Peggoi’s portly back pussoi,

Who died at Wiwyerm’s hands,

suffocated by pheasant carcass,

brown bread like Jeck (Peter Mastin)

 

Poor Sammy. Peggoi’s beloved cat cruelly murdered by Wiwyerm.  A martyr, forever commemorated by Archers Anarchists (Julian & Jeanne Sherwood & Mrs Potter)

P1010158

I recently met some cove, said he’d bumped into Sammy at an audition for James Heriot. Said Sammy had submitted a request to be killed off, a question of dignity he said.  Bloody fantasist! (Nick Gwyther)

Farewell then Sammy, General of the Feline Legions, loyal servant to the true empress of Ambridge Peggy Woolley, owner of a murderered cat. You will have your vengeance, in this life or the next (Veronika)

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
