What's in a Name? A Flash Friday Offering


Polly wants a cracker…
where could Underdog be…
Polly put the kettle on
we’ll all have some tea…
Polly has a pocket
what’s it to you, dude…
Nirvana wrote song, y’know
so change that attitude…
Polly as a prefix
means many, more than one…
Anna’s not her middle name
yet, she smiles at your puns

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


What can you say in 55 words?

Clearly, it's polymorphism. And the very finest example, too! :)

Sounds like there was a nickname or two tossed around the playground in days gone by. Clever little ditty

Margaret said...

...Underdog! ?

I used to watch that everyday after kindergarten... :)

G-Man said...

It's nice to open about it
You can't let things fester
So Anna's Not your middle name?
Perhaps it could be Ester?
Loved your 55
If you were a Cyclops you could be
Polyphemus!!
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...Singing
Polly Wolly Doodle All The Day :P

TALON said...

Isn't it funny when people think they are being incredibly witty and creative repeating things you've probably heard endlessly since childhood? Loved your 55.

Sue said...

Love this, Polly. So clever.

Grace said...

Wishing you Happy Holidays ~

Funny...as soon as I read your first line, I thought of that Nirvana song. You can say a lot in 55 words. Merry Christmas!

That was great fun - and clever.

izzy said...

Seem to remember several cartoon characters by those names-Polly can fly wherever she wants ! Merry holidays-

Mama Zen said...

This is really clever!

Merry Christmas!

Jannie Funster said...

Ha! Well said. But I imagine you've had all your life to not only develop, but live the reality of your name.

Merry Christmas!
