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.

Obama con brio

Mitt Romney delivered his much-ballyhooed speech on foreign policy yesterday.  His talk dealt mostly with Middle Eastern affairs and the policies he advocated sounded very much like those the Obama administration is already carrying out, but with a more hawkish tone.  

Here’s what Mitt seemed to say
About foreign affairs yesterday
“Where Obama’s been mawkish
I’ll be more hawkish
But I’ll handle things much the same way”.
