It was a shame
that his name was
fair game for blame.

As people lied, 
he just tried to
go hide somewhere.

    Carrie, I've known some people who dislike their names. Sometimes it is because the names are odd and other times it's because they share the same last name as someone who is infamous. Great work! Congratulations on your win in Rick's contest! Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving. Love, Carolyn

    You have completed a fantastic write Carrie! It's almost like bullies that are hurting him, putting him down, and defaming him like they tend to do! Excellent work!!
