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.

Sore Losers

It’s remarkable that the candidates defeated by Mitt Romney in the primaries, Michelle Bachmann, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, have thus far resisted endorsing Romney for President;  Jon Huntsman is the exception. 

Michelle and Newt and Rick
Conceded that they were licked
Mitt Romney was the one
Who beat them all and won.
The losers though are coarse
Because they won’t endorse
The winner of the fray –
At least they won’t today.
They’ll probably come around -
Resentment will die down -
They’ll bite their lip and say
“We’re for Romney all the way!”
