The name game

I’d never have guessed the fuss behind names To the rich and famous, their claim to fame To some a status of great importance Some changed by deed poll, classed as a hindrance Mr, a title and blend of Master Mrs, feminine can one go faster Such fuss over names, fill me with laughter They’ll always be here, before and after.

    Names are lame, and games are fun, but in all seriousness, I say we begin to shun the ones making all the MILL-I-ONS. What do ya say there nameless friend. I say we shake the rules and have some fun with them. By the way, welcome to the Soup...I wish you well, and don't eat poop! ~JSLAM

    Humorous indeed! Nothing is worth more than a good name- not a famous name nor notorious name. Keep up the good work!

    Humorous poems always seem so difficult for me to write. You have done this nicely.
