Boy With No Name

There was boy
Who had no name
His parents forgot
And it was a shame

Teacher took attendance
Each day at school
Raised his hand
With each name called
Like a fool
Just wanted a name
Like me and you

He didn’t need three
Or even two
Just one, just one
Just one would do

Like an ant
He roamed aimlessly
Give me your name
He asked desperately
No, no I can’t
He heard repeatedly

Until one day
He met a girl
Who made his head twirl
When she did say
If I can have yours
So he married her
Of course

They went to the bank
To open an account
Teller said fill this form out
Name, address
And deposit amount
Mr. And Mrs.
Oak and a sumly sum
The wrote in
And they were all done

This isn’t enough
Information for me
I need a name in my system
Don’t you see?
 And Mrs. spoke up
I used to be

Priscilla Sue
Angela Marie
But my mama
Called  me Beverly
When my daddy put me
Down to bed at night
He said sweet dreams
Penelope delight

But I married this man
Understand if you can
He is Mr. and I am his Mrs.
So we shall take
Our sumly sum
And put it under the mattress

They walked home
Along the crooked path
Climbed up the tree
Where they took a bath
Bank full of fools
With all their rules
They laughed

Started a family
Babies galore
Named each one ten times
Sometimes more
They didn’t forget
Like his parents did
When he was a kid

Without a name
Is not fun
People treat you like
You are no one


  1. Very fun and very intriguing. What inspired?

    1. Could have been a puffy cloud
      That spoke to me out loud
      A crystal tear
      Or too much beer
      Maybe the grand god kids
      Beauty and the Beast
      What inspired?
      Beats me
