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.

Conservatives Contrive Enthusiasm for Mitt

House conservatives are trying to work up enthusiasm for Mitt Romney, with only mixed success.  For example, Rep Louis Gohmert (R-TX) said “…whether you're liberal, whether you're very conservative, you ought to be excited because he's been on your side one time or another" and later added “I’m not as excited as I am desperate.”

We’re really excited about Mitt -
It just took us some time to commit
He’s sure to be a big hit
With the voters this fall, we submit.

So why don’t we seem that enthused?
It’s just we’re a little confused
Mitt’s views have often abused
Our trust and we’re not amused.

But Mitt is OK all in all
Although he doesn’t enthrall
Our congressional right-wing cabal
We just hope he can win in the fall.
