What’s in a nickname?

What is a sweet pea?

How did you get your nickname?

How did it come to be?

Of all the names to call you

How did you come to know

That the one you would choose to answer

would be for Kimmybow?

We have some other strange ones

The Achmed and the Goom

They feel and look so different

I doubt they will keep them

Once everyone is past

a distant moon.
