G is for…George, Curious George (#AtoZ)

Here is my latest post for the #AtoZChallenge for April 2022. My title and theme for this challenge is “Seriously Silly Poetry” in recognition of April being poetry month and also wanting to do something fun and playful to celebrate spring. I hope you enjoy this series.

“He was a good little monkey and always very curious.”

Curious George by H.A. Rey

George, Curious George

My name is George, Curious George, but my friends just call me Curious.

Let’s first address the elephant in the room: I did not, would not, could not ever kill the cat. Go ahead, ask the man with the yellow hat.

In fact, the cat in the hat was a very good friend. I cried when his 9th life came to an end.

So why have I been so unfairly accused? Why claim I’m the blame? Who is so strangely amused?

Well, I’ll find out! I’ll be sure to discover who’s casting blame, undercover.

For they don’t call me Curious for no reason. I’ve got all the questioning skills to expose such treason.

Who, what, where and why. How did the cat really die? Lie if you want. Go ahead, try. But I’ll catch you, I promise. For I’m Curious George – Private Eye.

Be well,

      I’m not so familiar with Peppapig. I’ll have to check George the pig out. Thanks as always for stopping by.

    Combining the 2 childrens literature icons with the old phrase was inspired. Dropping by from A to Z http://dave-homeschooldad.blogspot.com/2022/04/g-is-for-grief-griffey-and-geode.html

      I don’t think I ever saw the show — just read the books. I shared this with my daughter and she felt it wasn’t consistent with George’s personality…haha. Perhaps I took too much poetic license.
