"What's in a name?"

If Carolina wears a caribina
and Charlotta has got a

Will Phillip pass the
stirrups and Matt
his hat?

Why does Wycliffe
need his handcuff
and Gracie need a lift?

Will that be too
much for Smith
If Sally eats
the pith?

Can Heather find
the feather in
her pillow for
little Willow?

What's in a name?
By evidence
no substance
and that's a real shame!

Last few words: 
A piece of absurdity, but fun on the tongue with the assonance!
Editing stage: 


Yes fun on the tongue, and nicely written. Regards Roscoe..

for the mask of disbelief that's left.
