my name is FOR REAL
I am told this was the most popular baby boys' name in 1984.
I was born that year and in high school I had 40 friends; maybe more—
With the same first name to grace the locker room floor.
So I learned not to turn around when classmates in the hallway begun to hiss...
The most common name that rhymes with this.
As for the rules of this contest, I still could write my real name and give all Soupsters' the fits.
But no matter how common my name may be...
It is wondrous and with a different one, I may not even be me.
Thank you this for rhyming with hiss and thank you for giving all Soupsters' the fits!
