Sammy, the Gat: “I Stick With The Goon Cocoon”

(Glossary at end.)

I fold it over as I mix it up with the four-orbs, baldies and swing-and-swayin’ short skirts. I keep my puss low as I catch a flash of the Chi guy and his hag bag scopin’ the room. I bounce a two-eye off  ’em and get that they ditched the hairy feline felon.

I got my sock box with me so I stick with the goon cocoon as they swarm towards the in/out. I hit the tweed weave as two of ’em open violin cases. Then I red-face it when I see they got bass string-things instead-a cannons. I coattail a gargantuan gent and almost make it outta there when I hear, “Red-light it, Sammy. Gig’s up.”
