Right from the gecko I've gotten teased
For my mother named me Say-Ahh
And all my life I've struggled –
I think she meant Isaiah.

It's true, I guess, she says things funny
It's become, well, suit-o-lore
That when they ask for more Pacifics
She takes them to the shore

Alarmed at her window pain
She has to call the doc
And wait with baited breath
'Till he comes up the wok

Still, for all intensive purposes,
They really mean the same
So let's not go to all the fuzz
To correct eachother's names

The author's comments:
I've noticed recently that a lot of the poetry I and my peers write tends to be rather angsty and emotional and while these emotions are important, I think it's also worthwhile to sit back and laugh a little. Comedy is fun, too!
