The Lyrics

They’re clearly discomfort to read—mostly whinin’:
harmless schlock or a crock—load of blither jive.
Unsublime unrefined jobs hack, cause readers pain.
One needs a rest from this pestilential tribe.

(DARPA helped give birth to these guys)

This thick mob, can’t bear ’em as they maul the net, all.
They’ve not learned mechanics of the writing art,
yet we see them everywhere; go nowhere,
their missives. . .can make you queasy.
They’re packet hogs with rampant senselessness.
No way I can sit through the silliness that starts.

Hyperbolic often and often don’t look smart

Maundering blogs, mostly bad crap that’s hard to take;
the net would much improve if most would depart.
Blathery-powered, they make me tired—
most inane fare, some a true scare.
Set me free from this bastion of hot air.
I revile the blog style whose populace is large.

Some writing guidance might make better blogs embark
because as it is now, few rarely hit the mark.
Perhaps then some of them would appear much more sharp.
Mechanics, basics should precede the blogging bark.

JAB, I may not respond to this for a day or two b/c I am severely ill and need bed rest. Am on too many drugs and in too much pain to concentrate... :(
