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.

Huntsman Retires

Jon Huntsman’s called it a day
He’s getting out of the fray
He’ll now endorse Mitt
It’s all over, that’s it -
He hadn’t a chance anyway. 

Now Mitt will get Jon’s support
But the numbers come up rather short
And there’s no guarantee
That with Mitt they’ll agree
They might with Colbert consort.
