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.

Paul Ryan Acrostic

Paul Ryan’s Mitt’s choice for his ticket's VP
A handsomer dude there just couldn’t be.
Up early each day, he does exercises;
Loves P90-X:  his muscles win prizes.

Ryan’s got little or no body fat;
You’ll have to admit, he’s good to look at.
All the right-wingers think he is first rate
Needless to say, he’s a great running mate.
