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.

Newt Admits Mitt is It

Newt Gingrich admitted on a radio broadcast yesterday that Mitt Romney is “clearly the front runner” and will probably get the delegate votes needed to clinch the nomination.

Newt has said it will probably be
Mitt who becomes the nominee.
This is a major admission
From one who’s known for ambition.
So now what is Newt going to do?
Does he finally tell us adieu
And depart the political scene?
It’s more likely that he will be seen
On Fox, with the right-wing kooks,
And writing more of his books.
