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.

The Veep Debate

It seemed to be Joe Biden’s night
But Ryan put up quite a fight
He didn’t act like he was scared
And he came very well prepared.
But Joe’s an overwhelming force,
He overdid some things of course,
He smiled, he laughed, he interrupted
Paul Ryan’s statements he disrupted.
He snickered hard and gently chuckled
He hoped Paul’s thoughts would come unbuckled.
He seemed to get a little snarky
When he said “That’s just malarkey”
What was the aim of his attacks? -
Paul Ryan’s twisting of the facts.
Joe really gave the Dems a lift
That was his most important gift.
