Litotes: Master, what do you see for me?

A palliation, without exception, you were!
A misrepresentation, you have not been!
An exaggeration, you are not!
A reduction, you will continuously be!

Xenia Epigram
To litotes I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like mitigation
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using attenuation

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Can I show a rhyme, delivered so beings might see
Terse teaching abstracts, happily educating, and oh now provided free?
Satire or rebate look all too absolute. But is dryness?
Reduction, irony? - or decrease, ridicule? Damn! I neglected wryness!
I reason abatement and similarly lessening, but broadly ought I
- crank meanings so - innuendos fetched with computers spry?

      But settled on loss!
That literate man from Ramage.
