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 Stealth Candidate

Ron Paul’s organization has been quietly putting large numbers of their people in as delegates to the Republican Convention in Tampa, FL.  It’s clear that Romney will be the candidate chosen at the convention, but it’s very unclear what the Paul delegates are after. 

The delegates for Dr. Ron Paul
Are a stealthy, secret cabal
They’re going to revamp-a
Something in Tampa
But just what they won’t tell us at all.
