(for the side view theme)

 To say that I’ve been active, here,
Would be exaggeration;
I should indulge, I greatly fear,
In some self-flagellation!

It is remarkable to find
That though I’m posting not,
Yet in a blog I’ve left behind
Still visitors I’ve got!

Suppose they give disgusted glance,
Then tootle off at speed –
I really should give far more chance
To fill such reading need!

But then, you’d never ever see
Me do an overstatement,
Or even just hyperbole
Or any small embroidery,
Embellishment to nth degree,
Or write my facts inflatedly –
I’m all for self-abatement!
