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.

The Tree-Hugger Side of Fox News!

Fox News contributor Sally Kohn recently called the Keystone XL pipeline proposal a “slimy, scam of a deal” and listed 6 reasons why Obama’s decision to nix the deal was correct! 

Obama said there’d be no deal
To build a pipeline all the way
From Canada to our Gulf coast.
But people on the right all say

That we lose jobs that might be ours
And oil that we could really use
To moderate the price of gas -
But here’s Ms. Kohn - she’s on Fox News:

Obama’s right to nix the deal,
And here are 6 good reasons why.
Just read her argument yourself
You’ll find she’s hit bull’s eye.

The only thing that seems real strange:
Her point of view's unorthodox.
I  wonder how much longer she
Will be contributing to Fox.
