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.

Mitt's Tax Boondoggle

Mitt Romney pays fifteen percent
Of his income to the government
That’s lots less than you and me.
He doesn’t get a salary -
He cut a deal when he left Bain
To share in profits and retain
The lower tax rate for his pay:
The rich get richer ev’ry day.
