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.

Don't Scratch That Itch!

The Wilmington, DE, City Council just passed a resolution calling on state legislatures and the U.S. Congress to grant eggs and sperm “personhood” status.  The resolution was put forth as a protest against recent attempts to limit access of women to insured birth control.  Get the whole story, as well as the hilarious “Every Sperm is Sacred” (by Monty Python) here

Sperms and eggs are people, too
That’s what the Council just put through
So watch it guys, when you’re relaxin’
Be careful not to wax your Jackson.
