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 Primary Results Are In

Mitt Romney won the race last night
But Michigan was close
He won by only three percent,
In horse-talk, by a nose.
Mitt’s a little disappointed,
He had expected to do better.
Santorum’s glad he did so well -
He’ll take his best vest sweater
And angry message to Ohio
Where the lead he might retake.
Super Tuesday’s just next week,
Many delegates at stake.
Mitt’s rumbling death-star Super Pac
Will strafe the ground with TV ads.
Rick tells his workers to resent
Elitist college grads.
Newt is in the mix as well.
Do you remember him?
Unless he wins big-time in Georgia
His outlook’s mighty grim.
And then there’s good old Dr. Paul
Who’s teaming up with Mitt.
One wonders if his IOU’s
In Tampa he’ll submit.
