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.

Sarah Supports Newt

Sarah Palin has expressed dismay at the Republican establishment’s vigorous attacks on Newt Gingrich, calling them “Stalin-esque”.

Now Sarah has lent her support to old Newt:
The establishment’s starting to act like a brute
They’re saying that Newt is erratic, unstable -
To win the election he’s simply not able.
But Sarah herself has shown fang and talon
Newt’s critics, she said, are a bit like Joe Stalin

I am certainly with Sarah on this one, it's a great comparison! And she oughta know, since she can look into Stalin's bedroom from her front porch.
