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.

Banning Bad Behavior

This is my entry to Mad Kanes' Limerick Off, a weekly contest that involves creating a limerick based on a first line provided by Ms. Kane.  If you like to read or compose limericks, or enjoy political humor, check out her web site - it's fun!

Santorum has tended to brood
On banning behavior that’s lewd -
If I am elected
Guys won’t get erected
By pictures of girls in the nude.
