 ramblings and things


He said he was unhappy.
His parents had called him Bert.
It was an old fashioned name
And it embarrassed and it hurt.
A friend said it's quite simple,
Here's  what you do,
You just change the vowel
From an E to a U.
He's much  happier  now
And his life's not the same
To modify that old adage
It's all in the spelling of a name
