It was always Billy.
It will always be Billy.
Billy…. Great name for the guy
who always gets it in the end.
Probably every Star Trek
Red-Shirted actor was named Billy.
Billy was the hero he was told not to be.
Billy sailed the ocean and it killed him.
Billy is the all-American name for a boy
who is going to go down as someone
who was warm and sweet and wonderful
before he died.
Billy is the one who always loses out.
Billy – the name brings up an image
that is tender and poignant and
full of love and sweetness and
a wholesome affectation of someone
who is just so damn sweet
and wholesome.
It must suck to be named Billy.
