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.

The Florida Results

Last night the winner was Mitt
He beat out of Newt the shit
But Newt said today
“I’m not going away
I’ll be damned if I’m going to quit!”

Newt says “We’ve been lied to by Mitt
All his claims are a big crock of shit.
He’s on top for today
But I’ll find a way
I’m committed to making Mitt quit”.

The pathway ahead’s clear for Mitt
He’s got the momentum to finish it.
‘Gainst Newt every day
Mitt will hammer away
He’ll never ease up, he won’t quit.
