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 Illinois Results

Mitt Romney won the popular vote in the Illinois primary yesterday by more than 10 points.  Rick Santorum’s chances of winning enough delegates to win the nomination now seem very slim.  Both he and Gingrich are counting on a floor fight at the Tampa convention to stop Romney. 

Mitt’s win in Illinois was big -
He may have it in the bag.
But Rick still has the bug
For votes he’ll have to beg
And pray that Romney will down bog.
