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.

Ron Paul - An Appreciation

Adapted from image by Oven's Album
The GOP candidate Paul
Has been largely ignored by all
But he’s the real deal
He’s got balls of steel
And he can’t stand Newt Gingrich’s gall.

Ron Paul says that Newt is a hypocrite
Whereas Ron is himself just the opposite
He says what he means
He’s so full of beans
He scares us all more than a little bit.

Ron Paul's a bit loopey for sure
But his ideas are decidedly pure
So give him some credit
He won’t deign to edit
His views for the pollster du jour.
