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.

Voter Suppression on Steroids

Voters in Wisconsin have received robocalls saying that if you signed a petition for the recall of Governor Scott Walker, your vote has already been recorded and there’s no need  to vote in today’s election. This is untrue, of course. What will those fun-loving Republicans think of next?

Scott Walker’s allies made some calls
They’ve really got oversized balls
They said you can’t vote
If you already wrote
Your name for Scott Walker’s recalls.
