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.

Italy and the Euro Zone

The European debt crisis deepens as investor fears drove yields on Italian bonds above the 7% level.  

It’s Italy’s turn on the block
The yields on its bonds are a shock
Its too big to fail,
Too big to out-bail
The zone’s ‘tween a hard place and rock.
