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 Vulgarity Prize Goes To...

In an astonishing interview with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC this afternoon, Foster Friess, the director of the Super PAC associated with Rick Santorum, said “…back in my days we used Bayer aspirin for contraception, the gals put it between their knees and it wasn't that costly.”  Ms. Mitchell was temporarily rendered speechless at this sally.

Ms. Mitchell questioned Foster Friess
If Rick Santorum caused unease
With views of his on contraception.
And Foster said that his perception
Was that an aspirin worked with ease
If gals would squeeze it ‘tween their knees.
