Poetry #221
(published April 7, 2005)
Bill Smith
by G. David Schwartz
Bill Smith used to go to school with me
And I thought it was funny
That he had two of the most common names
and not plenty of money

I guess this was just the way
The cookie crumbles
I tried to get in touch with him
But the only way was the phone book
Now how can a man like Bill
So unique and so nice
Have a name with forty eight other people
Who live in this small city

Why is he not more popular than Arnold Rackabetty
