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's Fun Day with Ted Nugent

At the National Rifle Association convention earlier this week, Mitt Romney welcomed Ted Nugent’s support, saying that  "It's been pretty fun to get to know him, Ted Nugent".   The accompanying video shows just what a fun guy Ted Nugent really is.

Mitt thinks that Ted’s a lot of fun.
But how ‘bout when he holds his gun,
And says it’s what the Prez should suck?
Now Ted’s a really scary schmuck,
And Mitt’d be wise if he’d cut short
Ted Nugent’s threats and his support.
If Obama wins, Ted complained
That he’d be dead, or by jail restrained.
Mitt thinks that Ted is lots of fun,
But Mitt, what about that gun?
