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.

Newt's Tirade

Newt Gingrich appeared on the Hannity show the other night where he unleashed an intemperate tirade against Obama, accusing the administration of pro-Islamist appeasement, among other things.

Newt once again was on Fox
It’s one of his regular spots
He says things so sleazy
They just make me queasy
But the wing-nuts on Fox like him lots.
