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.

Out, Out Damn Todd!

Republicans are hoping, and no doubt pushing hard behind the scenes, that Todd Akin will just go away quietly and quit the race for Senate in Missouri. 

Drew Sheneman,
Akin’s got to go
He’s defiant even so.
But the GOP has ways
Of making those who stray
Listen and obey.
He’ll be gone today
No matter what he says
Because I’m sure you know
They control the dough.
