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.

Michelle Bachmann's Campaign "Almost Mistake-Free"

Michelle Bachmann maintained in an interview that her campaign was “almost mistake-free”, joking that not knowing Elvis’ birthday or the birthplace of John Wayne were two of the mistakes she made.

The GOP lady Michelle
She says her campaigning was swell
She has what it takes
To make no mistakes
‘Cause the Lord holds her in His spell.

Well, of mistakes there only were two:
The birthdate of Elvis she blew,
And she tried to retain
The birthplace of John Wayne
But it fled from her head on review.

There are many more errors that we could display
Like Obama’s trip costing 2 million a day
Or a child’s retardation
Due to her vaccination
Her “pants-on-fire” rating was highest they say.
