Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term shortenings
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for cuttings

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Can I show a pulse, committed so pupils might see
Fully charming notations, merrily informing, and oh but revealed free?
Axings or upsets seem all too manifest. But is butters?
Droppings, falls? - or shortens, cutbacks? Damn! I excluded cutters!
I ponder decreases and therefore contracts, but frankly ought I
- given concepts so - notations fetched with computers spry?
