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.

Gunning for Gingrich

The GOP's establishment intellectuals have launched an all-out assault on Newt Gingrich, in an effort to derail his candidacy.  

Adapted from photo
They’re going all out to bring down Newt Gingrich,
To stop him before it’s too late
He’d be a walking disaster, they say,
About that there’s just no debate.
He’s unstable, crazy, reckless and vain,
And morally witless to boot.
As our leader, he’d be an embarrassment -
Even Romney’d be better than Newt.
