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.

Oomph-less Mitt

You know the Romney campaign must be in trouble when both Rupert Murdoch and Fox News start whining about Mitt Romney's lack of pizzazz as a campaigner.  Fox news commentator Laura Ingraham suggested that people are "... looking for a little – I don’t know, oomph? Spice?" .  But the Republican strategist Chris Begala replied, "He is who he is and this is not an aggressive guy."


Mitt Romney hasn't any oomph.

When he walks into any roomph

Immediately it fills with gloomph

It's like the roomph becomes a tombph.


Now Mitt is not a guy for whomph

It's natural to fuss and fumeph

But inner fire he must exhumeph

or certain doomph will 'fore him loomph.
