The Very Model of a Blogger Very General


TITLE: I Am the Very Model of a Blogger Very General

I am the very model of a blogger very general.
I’ve a life existenti-al and really quite ephemeral.
I know things geographical and sometimes cosmological,
From Timbuktu to Doctor Who and space that’s hyperbolical.

I’m very well acquainted, too, with matters that are factual,

I question the rhetorical, theatrical, impractical.
About political imperium I really must recuse,
With oh so many tracts polemic on those views to disabuse.

With oh so many tracts polemic on those views to disabuse.
With oh so many tracts polemic on those views to disabuse.
With oh so many tracts polemic on those views to disabuse.

I’m seen as someone serious and sometimes perspicacious,
I eschew every posting that is trivial or scribacious.
In short, I have a life that’s existential and ephemeral,
I am the very model of a blogger very general.

In short, he has a life that’s existential and ephemeral,
He is the very model of a blogger very general.

I know a pyrric victory can be somewhat heterodox,
I answer the prognostics, I’ve a liking for unorthodox,
I quote from Old Moore’s Almanac predictions quite vicarious,
In comics I enjoy their blogs nefarious, hilarious.

I follow fellow blogger’s trials, their lows to their epiphanies,
I know all those subscribing to the Greek school of Diogenese,
Then I can learn so very many things I never knew before,
And now “postglacial isostatic re-adjustment” makes one more.

And now “postglacial isostatic re-adjustment” makes one more.
And now “postglacial isostatic re-adjustment” makes one more.
And now “postglacial isostatic re-adjustment” makes one more.

Then I comment on those blogs that I think do clearly misinform,
And in my contradiction seeking an opinion to reform.
In short, I have a life that’s existential and ephemeral,
I am the very model of a blogger very general.

In short, he has a life that’s existential and ephemeral,
He is the very model of a blogger very general.

In fact, when I know Tok Pisin, and the fine art of baldaquin
When I can talk of Anne Boleyn and why King ‘enry did ‘er in
When such affairs as sorties and surprises I can google at,
And know whose tomb’s inscrib-ed with, “palmam qui meruit ferat”.

When I have learnt to progress beyond English rudimentary,
And exercise my grammar like the protonotary gent-ary.,
In short, when I’ve a smattering of syntactic ergativity,
A blogger very general will join in the fraternity.

A blogger very general will join in the fraternity.
A blogger very general will join in the fraternity.
A blogger very general will join in the fra-tern-ity.

For though my general knowledge, which is more than rudimentary,
Has been somewhat restricted by the failings of my memory,
I still may have a life that’s existential and ephemeral
I am the very model of a blogger very general.

He still may have a life that’s existential and ephemeral
He is the very model of a blogger very general

Gilbert and Sullivan

The Major General’s Song sing-a-long
