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.

Michelle Not for Newt

A spokesperson for MichelleBachmann’s campaign  declared that she has not yet made a decision as to whom she would endorse, but indicated that Newt Gingrich  “lacks the poise, experience and moral fiber to represent our principles and values.”  Her campaign later denied making such a statement.  

Michelle has come out against Newt.
She obviously thinks he’s a brute.
He scorned her campaign
With lip-curling disdain
So she for a not-Newt will root.
