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.

Yesterday's Election Results

The elections that Mitt has just won
Mean the end for Santorum’s begun.
He’s got one more chance
In PA to enhance
His run or he’ll soon be undone.

Rick’s still got some hopes for next May
Southern votes could Mitt’s progress delay.
But it seems so remote he
Looks like Quixote
Attacking those windmills all day.

So what is Rick going to do now?
To stay in he has taken a vow.
If he loses PA
He will be flushed away -
And to Rick we will all say ciao.
