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.

Pants on Fire

Mitt Romney is a liar.  There’s very little doubt about that – just check out Dana Milbank’s recent column in the Washington Post, or Rachael Maddow’s in-depth study of Romney’s needless and mindless falsehoods.  

Mitt has issues with the truth
But doesn’t want to seem uncouth
And so his lies are always dressed
Up in their sparkling Sunday best.
He lies with such a natural ease
You wouldn’t recognize the sleaze
Or  think his tendency to improvise
Engenders countless, shameless lies.
