inquired the teacher
of the new comer.
Bridge, she announced, with the flair
of an actor,
“Ah! A connector, we have here,”
said the teacher.
With a ‘t’ appended,
the star added.
Animals refer not to each other by name
someone once wrote.
They rather sniff out their kinds.
The male deer chases not after the female
screeching “hey Sandie!”
“I’ll catch up with thee!”
I once met a Taylor
who dressed like a sailor
and an Angeline
with a face like a tangerine
A Leo from a long time ago,
who donned a beard like a goat.
Dogs have characters
But don’t sniff me like one
for I’m not that kind
and don’t call me “Hey you!”
A generic for inconnu.

the teacher regarded
the brazen newbie.
Is that a popular name in your area?
Yes, like your Maria
Well … smiled the teacher,
a name that connects
is not quite easy to forget.
Hi 'Bridge with a 't' appended
Your poem made me smile as there are some funny quips in there.
The last two lines are like that. "a name that connects is not easy to forget.'
So what's in a name? There is in fact quite a lot.
Now you've writen the poem about your name you
might like to write a limerick on your name.
Thanks. I'm glad you got a kick from this one. I write too many serious poems. Thought I'd write something funny this time.
