New Name Year .

H e was always the saintly , quiet one
 A and everyone knew his name .
 P etula Francis Xaviar
 P uts Johnny Cash's Sue to shame .
 Y et , he always held his dignity

 N o matter , who would provoke
 E specially , his crazy sister
 W alter Benedict , who he'd gladly choke .

 Y es , it was time for big decisions
 E specially for twenty ten
 A nd sissy names , particularly , ain't for real men ;( so he is now )
 R egina , Catie , Seanie , Carol Poetry , the Pen ..

Inspired for Carol's Happy New Year contest and "dared "to write and present this , by Catie .

    Great acrostic that had me smiling, Sean. A boy named "Sue" certainly had a challenge in life before him, but a boy named "Petula"? Well, guess his mother wanted him to be strong enough to cope with his "crazy sister." Nice work! Love, Carolyn
