Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word abbreviate
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for truncate

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Can I pass a metre, disclosed so people might see
Fully charming notations, clearly informing, and oh but imparted free?
Reduce or lessen look all too absolute. But is depress?
Summarize, abate? - or condense, decrease? Damn! I deserted repress!
I reckon epitomize and otherwise economize, but broadly ought I
- given meanings so - notations fetched with computers spry?
