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.

Santorum's Slump

Rick was out of sorts last night
He lost his nerve, he lost his bite,
He didn’t mention jobs at all,
He seemed a bit uptight and small.
He said he voted for de corps esprit
Although his heart did not agree.
It seems like this may be the start
Of a tendency to fall apart
Like all the old not-Romney types
Who’ve not lived up to their own hypes.
The polls in Michigan now show
That Romney’s catching up, although
Santorum thinks that he’ll still win
That confidence just might be spin.
Once celebrated coast-to-coast,
Right now he’s looking more like toast.
