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.

The Gay Guy's Gone

Mitt’s new foreign policy advisor, Richard Grenell,  resigned shortly after being signed on, because of relentless pressure from right wingers about his homosexuality.  Mitt made no attempt to rescue Grenell’s appointment. 

Now Mitt got a new guy to play
Foreign policy advisor today
Though he was just hired
He quickly was fired
It turned out the new guy was gay.
