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.

Exit Newt

Newt Gingrich announced that he will announce suspending his campaign on Wednesday. 

Newt has finally said
That his campaign is dead.
He’ll drop out of the race
With his customary grace.
His run he’ll disavow
A couple days from now.
Why the big delay?
He doesn’t want to say.

LOL! "Customary grace," indeed. :)
