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.

Gingrich Proposes John Bolton as Secretary of State

Newt Gingrich, speaking at the  Republican Jewish Coalition meeting yesterday, promised to appoint the controversial former UN ambassador John Bolton as Secretary of State if he were elected president.

For Secretary of State
John Bolton’d be put on the plate.
He’d soon bomb Iran,
He don’t give a damn
If a major world crisis he’d detonate.

What really makes me nervous is Gingrich promising to have Herman Cain appointed ambassador to Uzbeki-beki-beki-stan-stan.
