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.”
