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.

Rush Agonistes

There are hopeful signs that the broadcasting industry is losing patience with Rush Limbaugh.  Several sponsors have stated they will no longer support his show, and there is a petition drive to pressure more sponsors to drop him.  At least two stations have decided to drop his show from their lineup.  

There once was a pundit named Rush
He’d say stuff that made others blush
But he’s now gone too far
Let us say au revoir
As his program goes down with a flush.
