A Dog With Six Names
This is a poem about a dog
Not just any dog, but our dog.
It’s funny how everyone wanted to
give him a name, but each name was not the same.
Some wanted to call him Tarzan
I called him Rex
My sister who is into books and stuff
Named him Malcolm X
My other younger sister called him Fofi
A tribute to our late dog
I didn’t really mind ‘bout the name
Doesn’t it sound a little like coffee?
My younger brother called him Undertaker
Name of his favorite wrestler
I really loved this name, but mother was like
“Come up with something else, this is ...
Someday Never Comes
You said -
Your dad will come home,
There'll be no more tears,
No more fears
You won't feel hungry,
