President Obama announced that all American troops would be leaving Iraq by the end of the year.
The war's finally done in Iraq.
The winner will come as a shoq.
The prize goes to Iran
Who lost not a man
But now threatens the Mid-East en bloq.
The poet William Stafford set himself the task of writing a poem a day. When someone asked him what he would do when his poem-of-the-day wasn't very good, he replied "I simply lower my standards." In order to increase output, the bar here is set at a low level - the point of this is to have some fun with current events and politics. I welcome contributions and comments. Now you can also follow Doggerelo on Twitter (@doggerelo). Because of continuing medical problems, I'm no longer able to post a poem-a-day. I'll continue to post poems, but at a reduced frequency, so please stay tuned.
