By Any Other Name

He had wanted a boat
For his whole married life;
An argument ongoing
With his too-thrifty wife.

She finally relented
To his constant whining,
And gave him her blessing
While they were out dining.

“But I get to name it!”
Her sole stipulation.
Which he hardly noticed
In his jubilation.

His pleading and begging
Were of no avail,
He would stick to their bargain;
It would be named, “FOR SALE”!
