A Newborn's Name

Greg and Julie were having a fight

The issue? Their newborn’s name

Back and forth the argument went

They should have been ashamed

A scan told them what they needed

The bundle of joy? A baby boy

Julie was wanting the name Peyton

Greg was infatuated with the name Roy

Neither one of them would give in

So, they decided to flip a coin

Over and over in the air, it spun

In anticipation, hand in hand joined

On edge, that coin finally landed

Rolled into a coercer and got stuck

Standing on edge, it stood there

They silently stared, “Just our luck!”

“Let’s try it again,” Greg suggested

And into the air, it flippingly went

On edge, it landed, to corner rolled

On edge, it stood, that Lincoln cent

“I want to name my son Peyton!”

“Oh Yeah! His name is gonna be Roy!”

Back and forth the couple argued

They finally gave up, both were annoyed

“Let’s try it just one more time”

In frustration, they both agreed

That stupid coin, it did it again

They named their son “Flip,” as fate decreed
