Schmo: A Limerick in Two Parts

schmo png (2)

There once was a girl

who did not know

the power her smile

had on this schmo 

She’d run swiftly away

from his table most days

making him think

he should go


But he’s a schmo, so he kept coming back for more.  And so…


There once was a girl

who discovered

the heart that her smile

had uncovered 

So she sat down to stay

at his table one day

learning each felt the same

’bout the other

  5. Schmo…
    I’m trying to think of a three stooges joke but coming up short
    Perhaps I need more coffee
    Perhaps I need more heart.

  6. Damn it Bill, you make schmo sound so…like something I want to be all of a sudden…even though I’ve fought all my life not to be a schmo.

  9. Schmo sounds like Sean Connery trying to say “It’s Mo!” Never underestimate the power of a killer smile. Or limericks like this that are slaying them in the aisles and making them thirsty for more. Good job mate, Schmo joke 😉
