It’s Not Lucifer, But…

My neighbor’s kids are Michael,

Esther, Hannah, Ruth, and Paul

And they don’t think that Bible names

Are old-fashioned at all.

My other neighbor’s children

Are Meshack and Hezekiah

And for some reason no one thought

To even ask them why-uh.

But I follow suit and give

My kid a name of that kind…

But when I called him “Nimrod”

Everybody lost their mind.
