What’s my name?

What’s my name


He was four and didn’t know his name

He thought he knew what he was called

But when the teacher called “Ceri”

He didn’t say a thing.

She asked again

And looked at him.

He looked confused

And standing up

Said my names “boy”.


There’s a poverty of the heart.
