What’s In A Name? - Poem by John St. Martin

Those damn baby name books
Pose me to ask the question
What is in a name?
Well I’m not going to sit here
And Rhyme off all the meanings
Of you and me
He and she
But one must ask
That pertinent question
Does this really dictate the destiny?
Directed to us
By our parents indecisive rant
Our is this just an excuse to write some prose
Directing the reader by the nose
To the end line
