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.

Inauguration Anyone?

It's a little early to be selling tickets to the Romney inauguration, but Mitt's using it for fund raising purposes.  Can't blame him for trying, but it does seem a little premature at this point.  Anyone want to buy some tickets to the World Series Red Sox games? 

Mitt is out there selling tickets
To his inauguration
It is a little early yet,
But that’s anticipation.
Mitt’s feeling confident these days
That he’ll defeat the President.
He’s said that he should pack his things -
He’ll be the White House Resident.
So how much is it selling for,
This ticket to Mitt’s party?
It goes for $50 K – not bad –
I’m sure the food is hearty.
If that’s too much, then here’s a deal
That’s sure to be a hit:
On sale today for just $10 K,
A photo op with Mitt!
