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.

Why Senator Lieberman Voted Against the Democrats' Jobs Bill

Our senator from Connecticut
Says jobs won’t rise until we cut

Our debt dramatically.
He says this so emphatically

He must not be aware
That nearly everywhere

They did it,
Employment skidded.
