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.

Rick's Vision of America

Last night Rick Santorum, speaking to a group of about 200 people, gave a unrelievedly grim picture of the current state of the country.

Rick’s vision of this country’s real bleak
He’s really a downer with his critique
But cut him some slack
He’s been under attack
His pique followed a really bad week
