Be kind and tender to the Blog,
And do not call it names,
As “Rumble-guts,” or “Huffing-scum,”
Or likewise, “Hooker (James),”
Or “Full-of-crap,” or “Treppen-witz,”
Or “I-can’t-use-my-knees”;
The Blog is justly sensitive
To epithets like these.

No Written Form will more repay
A treatment kind and fair,
At least, so lonely people say,
Who keep a Blog (and, by the way,
They are extremely rare).

[Being a lampoon of “The Frog,” a poem by Hilaire Belloc.]
