What's in a name, a middlelittle name?
 4
Somebody's lie or some-bo-dies' sha-ame.
 5
 
 
Middlediddle name game, some are very tame;
 6
others Peter Paul and Mary very nearly lame.

What's in a name--littlemiddle name?
 8
Somebody's lie or some-bo-dies' sha-ame.
 9
 
 
Middlediddle name game, some are very tame.
 10
Others Ru with Paul and promise empty games.
 11
 
 
What's in a name--diddlefiddle name?
 12
Rosin on a bow, or a nose full of snow.
 13
 
 
Oh, name me a tune, a rotting Tommy Tune?
 14
Name me June or PastDecemberMoon.

"Daughter, son-- there never was a purpose
 16
to the names we gave you after Barnum's circus--
 17
 
 
name yourself a new name, a newlife middle name;
 18
one that tells in truth of the ables you have caned.
 19
 
 
What's in your name, newlittlemiddle name?
 20
Does it redeem..."

Interesting, a referance to the label assigned to us by our guardians. Lucky, for those of us that accept our names, our shameless names, based on the grand status of our parents.

Tell me, how to officially play this lame shame name game, diddlefiddle. haha, humor.

Enough with all joshing..

Is that oh, on line 13 necessary? and why the ? at the end of line 14 and 18?

fun read.
