    Can I get away
    With naming my future son
    Atticus Finch? No?

  2. megwood Says:

    I always wanted
    A daughter named Jean Louise
    Who I would call Scout.

  3. Mark W Bryan Says:

    Sing your heart out bird
    “One-shot” Finch can plainly see
    Why the dog must die.

  4. Kerri Says:

    I know a cat who
    goes by Scout- although her name’s
    really Jean Louise.

  5. megwood Says:

    (“‘One-shot’ Finch” just made me extremely happy.)

    “Jean Louise, stand up.
    Your father’s passing,” she said.
    My heart felt a hum.

    When I was so small
    I hoped to be Jem, the bold.
    Now – I’m Boo Radley?

    That film was so great!

    Robert Duvall – Boo!! 🙂
