The Naming of the Beast

Stanley
formerly known as Storm
stormy since he was born
got a different name
when he came
to join our family

of course – normally
the name you formally
sign for on the line
would be absolutely fine
if it didn’t mean you had to stand
clapping your hands
shouting ‘Storm!’ all the time
which is kinda charming
but can sound alarming

obviously I’m not saying
about naming
that Stanley’s any better
but you have to admit
when you think about it
Stanley sounds manly
and Storm’s just weather
