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.

God, Allen West and VP Nomination

Allen West, the overbearing Republican Representative from Florida, allowed as how he would accept the Vice-Presidential nomination if “that it is something that God would ordain…”.

Allen West has got the best
Answer to the VP quest:
If God says it’s OK
Then I’ll go all the way,
and do my best to please,
As long as Mitt agrees.
