Title: The Password

I have a name.
But that - it seems - does not suffice.
The National Health - in wisdom
tells me it is much too imprecise.
A Password must be given,
so they gave me one - so nice -
“Plastic Passage” I must write.
Such cheery words! So “me”!

I like my name,
it tells the world I’m “me”. -
that other title - that I cannot remember -
I think it starts with “P” -
I do not want. It will dismember
me from who I am.
In a Nation known for freedom
am I not allowed to call me “me”?
