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.

What is to be done?

Obama needs to start anew
His debate performance was a shame
His crew should tell him what to do
To get back in the game.

He’s got to look Mitt in the eyes
And parry each outrageous claim
By pointing out Mitt’s many lies
To get back in the game.

He must get up for this event
His fighting edge he must regain.
He should act like he’s the President
And get back in the game!
