I'd choose a different name than...

A Poem by Jack...

I have been accussed of being everyone on this site I think at one time or the other and I have now been called a posuer, (more than one indentity on WC). Unfortunately I am only me, just Jack.


I’d choose a different name than…



Can you tell me who I’d be

If like you say, I am not me

I see myself most everyday

With still the same face on display


My picture on this site is real

I have no secrets to conceal

Even as the insults mount

You’ll never find a closed account


You think I sometimes go by Red

Or Frieda, that is what you said

John McFadyen, there’s a name

Though I am not one and the same


Rita, Angel, Icelandicblue

You point the finger, say, “They’re you”

So many people I could be

But sad to say I’m only me


I think you’ll find, I am a man

Not Holly Mason, Carolann

Noodlehead or Lily Mae

Or any other name you say


Keith or Sami, Thomas too

And now there’s Dean, that’s something new

Eglantine, oh yes Marie

None of these fine folks are me


Tammy, Kristin, Elisa L.

Makes me wonder, what the hell

All fine poets, I must say

Veronica,  and Girl Friday


Que Sera Sera, Constance Payne

Still you’ll find Jack is my name

Angi, Astro, Rhythm and Blues

They’re not me, perhaps they’re you


Aurora, Ken or David Scott

You say they’re me, I say they’re not

Then there’s Baby Ricochet

Still not me, you’ll hear me say


I Have a Voice, Kimmer, Quill

Keely Jane, now Doug or Jill

Insanity, Boy of the Red

Jacob's name I think you've said


Though everyone you seem to name

Are all my friends here just the same

Robbie, Emma, Dhaye and Rose

Add more names, my friend list grows


So let me say in words so true

I’m only me, I am not you

And if I was (said with a grin)

I’d choose a different name than…

I do the prayers, Jack does the romance. Obviously he is me...or I am him...or we are Rita...or Jacob is really Red, or the Stapler slipped into the Noodlehead, and we have Pickles to go, or else the Quill Ricochet off of the Baby, and Jack was a Girl Friday, and dig them Rythm and Blues...but...um...and...but...
Oh, I can't keep it all straight!!!!!
I am he and he is me and we are he and we are altogether...koo koo ka choo...
Jack is the Walrus!!!

See, I knew I could figure it all out... Brilliant piece, Jack...erm...OH I GIVE UP!!!!!!!!

Interesting. Aside from my curiousity as to what (or who) inspired this piece, I will say that I enjoyed it. It reads much like a Dr. Seuss story.
Well Done Johnny. 😉

Nice! Humor is one of the best ways to deal with things. :)

I'm glad you're just Jack. 'Cause I already nicknamed you Jackomantic and I like it, LOL.

Thanks so much my friend.
I hope that anyone reading this would find the humor in it. I surely did, I felt like I was reading a Dr.Seuss tale one where the Cat in the Hat explained that he had but 1 life and not 9 but if he did that'd be just fine. :)

Thanks Astro, it was supposed to be humorous, so indeed I hope they all laughed.

9 Years Ago

Me too, nothing better than a good laugh. :D
Oh Jack, we all know you're parading around this site with at least 50 different profiles ;) Seriously, though, this was one of the most clever reads of the day. I find it amazing that anyone would even actually have the energy to have more than one account in a place like this, and what would be the point? I, as you have said in this fine piece, have used my real name, real pictures, and it would be pretty stupid of me not to considering that I am publishing a collection soon. *sigh* There will always be "haters", my friend, just allow them to roll off your back.

Brilliantly written...very well done!

Thank so much Keith. Using humor and sarcasm as my shield. :)
I haven't been here that long to know all the people you speak of, but I do know some, it's very perplexing to follow the melodrama on this site, I'm usually content to just read...this is funny, I must admit.
