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.

Iranian Uranium

David Ignatius suggested in yesterday’s Washington Post that Iran is showing signs of wanting to make an agreement with the West to limit their enrichment of uranium in exchange for an easing of the sanctions that have crippled the Iranian economy. 

Iran is always surreal
But it might be seeking a deal
To forgo the bomb
In exchange for some calm
It’s a deal that has real appeal.
