Why I Blog

An element of vanity,
A smattering of mirth,
A stab at sifting sanity,
An accident of birth.

Like a lemming I join
that theater of voice;
Just hoping to coin
a phrasing of choice.

Expressing the contemporary,
Uncovering the obscure;
For dialogue giving sanctuary,
Or just blithering in pure.

Such are the reasons I blog;
If it seem not enough,
To endure such a slog,
Please don't leave in a huff.

Don't follow the herd;
Perhaps you may parse
In the blogging of a nerd
Profundity strolling with farce.
