With thanks to T.S. Eliot

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter.....

...When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
the reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his Name:
His ineffable, effable,
deep and inscrutable singular Name.

Gus is the Cat at the theatre door.
His name, as I ought to have told you before
is really Asparagus. That's such a fuss
to pronounce, that we usually call him just Gus.
