A Poem a Day #6 - Joe Schmo

For today's poem, I want you to write a poem about something missing. It can be about an actual physical object or something you just can't put your finger on (like "love" or "the spirit of Christmas" or something).

Joe Schmo

There once were a feller, Joe,
who had fewer brains than dough.
He opened his yap,
foot into the trap:
he lost way more than his toe.

  1. OUCH!!!
    Sorta reminds me of the WOOZ scarecrow!

  2. Sounds like he was a politician.

  3. He put his foot in it good and proper!

  4. Well he is missing something now.

  5. Charming.
    Unfortunately, I think most people fitting Joe's description become superstars in the media.

  6. Nessa, if I come over there, can we meet?

  7. I had no idea you knew Joe! Boy that guy sure gets around well for a gimp!

    Maggie: And couldn’t get it out.
