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.

It's Super Tuesday!

Today’s the day – it’s Super Tuesday
Mitt Romney hopes for a good news day
If he’s the winner in Ohio
Rick might have to say good-bye-O.
If Tennessee should go Mitt's way
He’ll obtain some real cachet
In Georgia, Newt will prob’ly win
Would one more comeback then begin?
In Oklahoma, Rick’s ahead
He’s got to win here or he’s dead.
Ron Paul’s not really in the race
In Virginia he’ll be second place
And that’s because it’s him and Mitt,
Rick and Newt are out of it.
So there you have my brief survey:
Mitt comes out ahead today.
