Watts in a name

Watt,s in a name


A surname a parent cannot attain
yet every thought should be given to the same
Poor old  Andrew Pratt, or Thomas Watt come to that
pratty or watty, more likely pratt or twatt

For the bully is a simple child
don’t make its work easy to drive someone wild
The playground is the harshest of  streets
To fit in you have to abide by the name that unto you greets
 so wear them with pride
And undetected become who you are inside

The aim of the game is to be who you are despite of your name
rise above it and prove people wrong
To not be a pratt or a twatt will prove you are strong
So stand proud and prove your name lame
or just be a Twatt  for life all the same

The choice is there to be , what to do
and the best you can be is still down to you
Be Mr  Watt with your head held up high
and please choose to wave the Twatt handle Goodbye

with Love

MB 2013
