Welcome to day 121 of the 365 day poem challenge.
Word of the day schlemiel meaning: "a stupid, awkward, or unlucky person."
The tale of the schlemiel
Good day sir said the schlemiel
Good morrow replied the fat reprobate
They strolled on each to their own business
the schlemiel could not connive why such beautiful trees bloomed by the river
He tipped his hat down to the mayors wife Lillian, who strode across the bridge
The schlemiel being fond of
Wide bosoms trailed behind
Unbeknownst of her small-town nobility
Good day, gleefully he sang
She replied being dour and cheeky
She had him if only for her jealousy
Who happened to stroll by
In the meadow two blonde
Souls nestling about
The schlemiel looked up and saw despairs
Lillian crooned and smiled mischievous
The schlemiel fled
The reprobate chastised the woman
So they say but others say
She crushed him beneath her pleasantness and constant indifference.
