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.

Mitt Diamante

              Pleasant, wealthy
           singing, smiling, joking
  handsome, awkward, slippery, false
      flipping, flopping, fibbing
               brazen, insidious

For the evidence, see this clip from the Rachel Maddow show.
