The Hyphenated Marriage

Agatha Walker Cardoon Delight
    married Thomas T. Fredrick Zigler tonight.
Who could imagine what their name would be.
    Would it start with an A and end with a Z?

Agatha Zigler seemed alright
    but woe to Cardoon and Delight.
So Agatha Walker Cardoon Delight
    and Thomas T. Fredrick Zigler, contrite,

        decided a last name of Smith was alright.
