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.

Jewish Socialism

I’ll be taking a break for a couple of weeks, but while I’m gone, here are some of Doggerelo’s greatest hits, in case you missed them first time around.

It turns out, not surprisingly, that Sandra Fluke, the object (slut! prostitute!) of Rush Limbaugh’s ravings about her Congressional testimony on birth control, has a boyfriend, Adam Mutterperl.  Brooks Bayne has written an anti-Semitic screed that focuses on the relationship between Mutterperl’s family  and “the typical Jewish variant of socialism”.  The words “Jew” or “Jewish” appear 18 times in Bayne's article – get the point?

Ms. Fluke’s got a boyfriend, and wouldn’t you know,
He’s from a rich family, but that is not all,
The family is Jewish! My God, what a blow!
They’re linked to several Jews that appall
Like Louis Brandeis, a secular Jew
And socialist once on our highest Court,
And the Jewish eponymous Brandeis U.
Which foments neo-Marxist support.
The boyfriend’s parents, Nancy and Bill,
Are the very worst kind of activist types,
They promote “social justice” a code to instill
Marxist programs of various stripes.
Our media haven’t discussed this at all,
But Brooks Bayne, some think, has plenty of guts
To expose this Jewish-Marxist cabal,
But more likely it's true that he’s simply a putz.
