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.

Trump Loves Mitt....Now

In April, 2011, Donald Trump characterized Mitt Romney’s tenure at Bain as follows:  “He’d buy companies, he’d close companies, he’d get rid of jobs.”  Now, however, as The Donald’s gotten to know The Mitt better, he thinks “he’s a terrific guy”.

The Donald is now rooting for Mitt
But before that he had to admit
Many workers he fired
Before he retired
And the profits he and Bain split.

But now Donald thinks he’s just great
A new story he has to relate
He’s my guy, Donald said,
I once was misled
But now I think he’s first rate!
