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.

Senate Votes to Cut Carbon Dioxide Emissions!

The Senate unanimously passed a bill to reduce carbon emissions 50% by the year 2050. Mexico's Senate, that is.  The U.S. Senate is not likely to adopt such a sensible measure anytime soon. 

You might think this news is fantastico
The Senate’s completely simpatico:
They voted to cut
The CO2 glut.
Too bad that this Senate’s in Mexico.
