Sylvia I was christened
And for sixteen years it suited fine.
It was then I started working
Where another had this name of mine.
"To avoid confusion"some bright spark said
"Why not call the original(fifty year old)Sylvia by her name
And the new one junior instead"
Well I was most indignant,teenage ego crushed.
I wasn't going to have this at all.
So I reached a compromise shortened it toJune
And only responded to this call.
From then on to everyone even future spouse
I introduced myself by this name.
Sylvia in personal life slipped away.
But for officialdom it remained the same....
I penned this to avoid a build up of confusion
And to protect this poet's sanity.
Please super Soup friends call me June.
When you write Sylvia my mind asks 'who is she'?
