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.

Everyone Loves a Winner

Donations to Priorities USA Action, President Obama’s Super Pac, have increased sharply in the last few weeks.  It seems likely that this is related to Mr. Obama’s recent rise in the polls.  Some folks clearly like being associated with a winning ticket. 

Contributions to him have been slack
But Obama’s now on the right track
And the rich want to go
With a winner and so
They throw dough at his Super Pac.
