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.

Romney Blasts Obama for Defense Cuts Republicans Agreed To

In excerpts released from an address to be delivered today to the VFW, Mitt Romney castigated the President for automatic cuts to the Defense Department that were part of the sequestration deal that Congress, including Republicans, agreed to in an effort to resolve the debt ceiling crisis last year.   

How dare he cut defense!
It doesn’t make much sense.
Although Republicans took part
It’s still Obama’s fault!
