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.

Romney: Obama Wanted Higher Gas Prices

Mitt Romney said today that there was “no question” that the President had a plan to increase the price of gas when he took office and that his appointments of the Secretary of Energy, the Secretary of the Interior and the EPA administrator were designed to help “implement that program”.  This is not the first time Mitt has provided us with his own special insights into what Obama is thinking (see Pinocchio for President).

I do believe Mitt’s gone insane
He’s got those tangles in his brain.
He says Obama’s great desire:
To make the price of gas go higher
Perhaps Barack has next at hand’s
A plague of locusts o’er our lands.
About Mitt’s claims, what must be said is:
His nether region’s where Mitt’s head is.
