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.

Romney vs Obama Speeches

Images from

Mitt’s speech on Friday was a bust
The lack of bodies much discussed -
There’re lots of empty chairs in there.
Perhaps it’s just a bit unfair
To compare the crowd Obama drew
Four years ago with just the few
Of those who showed up to hear Mitt -
It doesn’t flatter Mitt a bit.
And adding to his bad news day
It wasn’t great for him to say
In trying to make amusing cracks,
Ann Romney drives two Cadillacs!
