As someone with a very...odd... last name I know the eternal embarrassment of no one ever knowing how to pronounce it - ever. So I thought I'd write this poem; an ode to the odd name.

A million ways to
pronounce it

Even more ways
to mess up

As a difficult name

I've already accepted my fate
of

"Close enough"
of a moment of flared

Embarassment 

I'm not going to teach you
how to say it

For I know that I can never change
My life of being

A complicated name
