He called his daughter Sofa
“That’s rather odd,” said I,
“Are you sure you don’t mean Sophie?"
But he explained the reason why.
“We could have called her Worktop
Or Fireside rug or Floor
Or Garden bench or Table
Or Up against the door
But we finally settled on Sofa
(I’m sure she’ll be relieved)
And we think that’s the most likely place
That Sofa was conceived.”
