Hyphen

 

A hyphen in the middle of a name

Should be a cause for bashfulness and shame;

But in the course of life’s one-sided game,

Double-barrelled monikers are handy

And public school credentials are dandy.

By hiding posh pursuits that he enjoys

And spicing up bravado with more noise,

A chinless toff becomes one of the boys.
