Out of wedlock

At the font, the priest spluttered,
“You can’t name this child
after a cartoon character.”

(Didn’t he know there were
five Popes and seventeen saints who bore the name –
or Felix of Cornwall,
who communicated with all feline creatures?)

 I elaborated, demurely. 
“His middle name is Culpus   –
for Fortunate Fall.”
