A Popular Name (2007)

We were all babies at one time or another-
Whether the first in the family, or with an
awaiting sister or brother.
And one thing for sure that our parents had
to do-
Was to give us a name, that would follow us
our whole lifetime through.
The names that are given come from carefully
chosen themes-
Whether it be a relative’s name, celebrity, or
a name thought up in our dreams.
Emma and Aiden, in both 2005 and 2006-
Were the favorite baby names, among the rest of the
And in 2004, it was Emma for the baby girl-
With the male name of Jacob, for the
baby boy, freshly entering into the world.
2003 put Emily as baby girl name number one-
As Jacob, the baby boy name, was solid through and
through, to get the job done.
Emily and Jacob were on top in 2002-
Letting no other baby name above them get
In 2001, Emily and Jacob
made the top of the baby list-
Two names at the parents insist.
Hannah and Michael in the year of 2000-
Were the baby names, that ruled the land.
Of course. I could go on and on-
But then my writing room would all be
But before I go, I’d like to highlight
a few decades-
In which the baby names changed, and shows the
choices that were made.
Jessica and Michael in 1990 held the honor-
Not letting any other baby names, walk through
that winning door.
1980 and 1970 were exactly the same-
With Jennifer and Michael being the top
baby names.
In 1960, at the top of the grid-
Were the baby names of Mary and David.
In 1950, it was Linda and John-
The winning baby names that tended to spawn.
Mary and James in 1940 held the top spot-
The baby names, that the parents
tended to like a lot.
And in 1930 Mary and Robert-
Were the two top baby names
that no one could skirt.
1920, 1910, 1900, 1890, and 1880, parents played
the same baby naming game-
With Mary and John being the top baby names.
No wonder when my name is called, “we” tend
to turn our heads and look around-
For obviously, in this world, many Mary’s appear
to be around.
Whatever name a parent chooses, it is always on
the top of their list-
Hopefully with that relative so and so is not being missed.

Three Things That Many Teenagers Have In Common (2010)

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 385 (That Common Cold)

The common cold came-
And, things never again,
were the same.
The sneezes came on a
regular basis-
Which the tissue, not much
did it miss.
And, the eyes watered a lot-
Thinking that a rainfall, is
what we’ve got.
Surely, surely, of course-
The cough came in full force.
Not fit, to be in a crowd-
As the coughing continued
quite loud.
Figuring that it would never
Eventually, we get over it,
we do mend.
The common cold came-
And, things never again,
were the same.
