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.

Go Rogue, Mitt

Sarah Palin’s advice to Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan is to “go rogue” because, in her view, America is at a “come to Jesus” moment and needs straight talk about the economy.

Go rogue Mitt, go rogue
If you want to be the Pres
Listen to what Sarah says
You've got to put aside those blinders
You shouldn't listen to your minders
Take your advice from me
Forget about the GOP.

Go rogue Mitt, go rogue
Your campaign so far's been really dumb
'Cause your real feelings you keep mum
It's a "come to Jesus" time
Silence now would be a crime
Don't hold back no more
Let people know the score.

Go rogue Mitt, go rogue.
Th'economy is really bleak
Why don't you rise up and speak?
Perhaps you're just a hollow man,
You haven't really got a plan...
Although it's not in vogue
Go rogue Mitt, go rogue.
