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.

Etch-A-Sketch, R.I.P.

Mitt Romney’s known for vacillation.
Inveterate prevarication,
But now he’ll have to toe the line
He’s tied himself to Paul D. Ryan.

No more waffles, no more wavers
He’ll have to act as if he’s braver
Because he now must toe the line -
He’s hipwise joined to Paul D. Ryan

To Etch-A-Sketch the door’s been shown
Mitt’s views are now writ large in stone
He’s locked in with Tea Party’s line
He’s now a clone of Paul D. Ryan.
