Name Game

The hitch to being frank
and salvaging a nick
you forfeit every hank
to become a plain old dick.

Yea, I like this one, too. Names fascinate me. Once, I named a character (a homeless man with no legs who wheeled himself around on a cart) 'Crucibill'.

There's something almost Ogden Nash-like about this one. Very good!

Well I didn't even want to go near the connotations for Bob :(
