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 Results Are In

Last night’s results were big for Rick
He really pulled off quite a trick
The big trifecta he has won
Mitt Romney he’s again outdone -
In Missouri, he won 2-to-1.
Newt Gingrich’s looking pretty poor
He’s lost a lot of his allure
As best alternative to Mitt -
Rick’s now looking pretty fit.
Ron Paul for once beat Romney too -
In Minnesota he was number two.
Is Mitt downhearted?  No siree,
He’s got big bucks and so we’ll see
If he can buy his way to victory.
