Tom-Cat is a collection of humorous and witty poems written by Don Marquis, centered around the character of Archy, a free-verse poet who inhabits the body of a cockroach. In this particular book, Marquis introduces readers to Tom-Cat, a tomcat who serves as Archy's nemesis.

The poems in Tom-Cat explore the playful dynamic between Archy and Tom-Cat, as they engage in a series of witty exchanges and pranks. Marquis' clever wordplay and sharp satire add depth to the characters and their interactions, making for an enjoyable and entertaining read.

What sets Tom-Cat apart from other poetry collections is the unique perspective from which the poems are told – through the eyes of a cockroach. This unconventional narrative style adds a layer of creativity and originality to the poems, making them both intriguing and thought-provoking.

Overall, Tom-Cat is a delightful read that will appeal to anyone with a love for clever wordplay and humorous poetry. Don Marquis' wit and charm shine through in each poem, making this book a must-read for fans of light-hearted and whimsical literature.
