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.

Results from Super Tuesday

Mitt Romney won six states in all
It was a pretty good night’s haul.
Ohio proved to be a squeaker
But Mitt avoided looking weaker -
He came in first by one percent
Thanks to all the cash he spent.
And as for Rick, he did OK
He’ll live to run another day.
He won 3 states, that’s not too bad,
All things considered, he seemed glad.
Newt too was cheerful ‘cause he won
In Georgia, where he’s native son,
But that was all for him last night
Although he said he’d take his fight
To other Southern states next week
And try to send Mitt up the creek.  
Ron Paul’s not won a race so far
His purpose seems a bit bizarre
But he’s got plans for the convention
But what they are, he doesn’t mention.
For Super Tuesday, that’s a wrap,
It was a bitter, angry scrap
And after all that harsh combat
Not much has changed despite all that.
