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.

Cameron's Folly

The economy of Great Britain has now officially in a double-dip recession,  the expected outcome of the austerity measures pursued by Prime Minister David Cameron. 

David Cameron is all for austerity
He’s pursued it with steadfast asperity
But his plan went awry
‘Though he can’t explain why  
It’s increased the recession’s severity
