Poetic Asides An Unsuitable blank for a blank

An Unsuitable Name for a Baby

A little innocent
comes into the world.
Peaceful and sweet,
he or she lies there
unaware of the
brewing storm
as parents come up
with names like

Anoush, Atara, Behan,
Cormac, Cosima, Cotton,
Ebo, Ecru, Elspeth,
Fable, Herbert, Isolde,
Jaguar, Keziah, Lo,
Ono, Merrigan, Mucia,
Primus, Uilleam, Waldo,
Wilder, Zeus, or Ziggy,

They might be singing songs
patterned from
A Boy Named Sue.
