Ich Bein Ein Midnight Blogger     [a responsive ditty]

what an argument you hone
& a worthy axe you grind
daresay you're in the zone
as you ventilate your mind
I stumbled on yer blog
googling "Indran Amirthanayagam"
might say you cleaned Lehman's clock...
a Midnight Blogger? I am one

Responsive to Roger Pao's articulate rant (or, estimable cavil), David Lehman Takes a Swipe at Bloggers

With incidental hat-tips both to Lehman (whom I've met, and like), and to the poet Amirthanayagam -- whom I'd long since lost track of (we were acquinted in DC a decade ago, and I should be pleased to locate the good chap again).

full disclosure: the actual search string, "Indran Amirthanayagam blog," is truncated in the verse (poetic license)

Wow, I thank you for the ditty, and tip my hat back to you!
