'Christened' - Poem by Michael Micmac Mccrory


We started thinking seven months before
About your name, from heroes or from folklore
It needed to suit your character with a roar
We didn’t want you to grow to be a bore
Therefore, the name we chose had to set you apart
As well, as give you a lion of a heart
Not for a snivelling worrier
A name suitable for a warrior
We chose an outstanding name
That will put you ahead of the game
That’s what was in our thought
When we chose a name so taut
We wanted a name that wasn’t humble
For you to go through life without a grumble
We want you to be ahead of the race
A name to suit your manly grace
A name that would make you friendly and caring
A name that would make you sound heroic and daring
A name that would set the whole world agog
That is why we named you Zog
