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.

Scott Walker: Still Governor of Wisconsin

Scott Walker held on to his job yesterday,
The voters have now had the ultimate say.
The Democrats are morose;
The final results weren’t close

Much money was poured into last night’s election.
The unions were funding a bold insurrection.
But the effort has come down to naught;
Union members are really distraught.

Conservatives surely are highly elated
For this is a victory that they’ve long awaited.
Progressives are feeling ground down:
Scott Walker is sticking around!
