Phineas Taylor


Now there's a boy named Phineas Taylor,
Not that Circus Barnum PT, but
Brother to Simon Moses,
Son to Nathan Taylor,
Grandson to Scott Hilton.
Abbotts all.

Breaking again the double mold,
Eschewing penurious nomenclature,
two syllables, Or worse, the singular
Bob, Jack, Scott. 
Clipped and short.

Not so the gentle Phineas.

Phineas Taylor,

Go, go Phineas.
