Abbreviating: Master, was I optimistic?

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

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, proclaimed so beings might see
Fully exalting innuendos, however informing, and oh yes provided free?
Paring or lessen look all too apparent. But is slewing?
Lessening, abate? - or resuming, subduing? Oops! I excluded slowing!
I reckon abridging and otherwise depleting, but broadly ought I
