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.

The Christian Vote

The Christian right will vote on Saturday
And then we’ll see if they accept
The Church of Mitt  - The Saints of Latter-Day.
But Newt won’t get their vote - he slept
Around a bit while he was married
Because he wanted partners varied.
Rich Santorum’s sure to get
A lot of Christian votes, I'll bet.
For Rick said God told him, "I warrant
It would be a grave mistake
If gays the vows of marriage take."
Some Christians find them all abhorant
And will sit it out election night.
And you know what? I think they're right!
