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.

Perry Retires

Rick Perry cried “I’m outta here,
But just before I disappear
I wanna say that Newt’s my guy -
He’s better at debates than I
And more conservative than Mitt,
But as for me, I’m through - I quit.”
