Wind by any other name doth smell the same

Wind by any other name doth smell the same -
Is my lovely name a misnomer then?
I am myself though, yet a true Sweetlove.
What’s a Sweetlove? It’s neither hand, nor foot,
Nor toe, nor any other naughtier part
Belonging to a being, sweet as moi.
What’s in a name? That which we call a fart
By any other name would smell as great;
And so Edna would (were she not Edna called
But maybe Deidre or Albert Buttock),
Retain that wondrous odour which she owns
Without the lovely Edna Sweetlove name.
Thus the word fart which is no intrinsic
Part of me is but a blow-off of wind.
