Names You Will Never See

Names You Will Never See By Elton Camp The image of a place or product is high on its list Names that would damage it will always be missed The names “Cheat and Swindle” for a law firm Would make the two esquires sweat and squirm “Dr. Payne’s Dentistry” conveys the wrong thought “Crook’s Realty” honest Mr. Crook shouldn’t ought “Greasy Spoon” would never be the name of a café From “E. Coli Market,” a wise merchant stays away The name “Adolph” for a boy is a very nasty trick “Benedict” for Arnold’s son won’t be a good pick “Roach’s Bakery” would be a major mistake “Fair Weather Insurance,” nobody would take No parents would name their daughter “Jezebel,” And “Judas” for a son would be rejected as well That there can be quite a lot, indeed, to a name Romeo and Juliet found the outcome a shame

Hey Toquyen, I have to admit that there used to be a tax service here in this town named "Swindle Tax." Years ago, there was a "Cheatem & Bragg" real estate office. Elton
