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 on Global Warming

Mitt Romney's various positions on global warming are described here.

The earth is warming up, said he,
He also thought that we might be
At fault to some extent -
That we too much augment
The CO2 in th’atmosphere.
But he said that way back last year
And now he’s come to doubt
If any person knows about
The reasons for our climate change.
So now he finds it very strange
That anyone would think it’s true
That we must spew less CO2.
