16. Jonathan Michael was his name

Jonathan Michael was his name
He was known to all as JM
 A very initialized way of being
He was a tad short for such an elongated name anyway. 
“Pretentious to presume otherwise,” he muttered to himself.  

It was easier to say and spell it that way. 
Still, he wished people would say it his way. 
Not for him would he find fortune or fame
Jonathan Michael was his name

Jonathan Michael had such a flair
JM was his nom de plume 
Quite a shortened man but
Jonathan Michael was his name. 

First he was nicknamed Johnny
Then he was called Mick
He wished they would use his proper name
But JM was their end game
 
Even though he still knew that
Jonathan Michael was his name
