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.

Perry Forgets

In last night's debate, Rick Perry was unable to remember the name of the Department of Energy, one of the Federal Departments he said he would abolish.  

When I get to be President Perry
There’s three bureaus I’m going to bury
There’s Commerce, that’s one
And there’s  Edu-ca-tion
And the third’s, I dunno,…EPAry?
