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.

Chris Christie: Never, Never, Maybe

Chris Christie, Republican governor of New Jersey and outspoken darling of the Republican party, has always and forever maintained he has no interest in the Vice-Presidential slot.  Now, however, he says that Romney “might be able to convince me” to be Mitt’s Veep. 

To be sung to the tune of "Never Will I Marry"

Never, never will I carry
Water for the President
Born to be the top canary
Wide my pants, firm my intent
Never, never, never will I relent
Not for me Vice-President.

But if Mitt should ask
I’d think of the task
And maybe he’d be
Convincing toward me
Born to be the top canary
But let’s rethink my intent
Maybe, maybe, maybe I’d be very
Good as the Vice-President.
