It is said that in China,

They’ve run out of family names….

With so many people born there

They can’t be all the same.

They ran out several years ago

And population keeps growing…

They’ll have to solve it anyhow,

More baby names bestowing!

Our Mom and Dad picked for us Biblical names,

All from the same root word…

My Dad’s name, John, Nathan and Jonathan,

We two brothers are so served.

My brother , Nathan, is inclined

To carry on the family line…

While “little” me

No children will see,

Were desired but not designed!


–Jonathan Caswell
