Sacred to Commonweal was this net design’d
To pierce the heart and humanize the mind.
But if a hitless Blog, the Blogger’s curse,
Shows us our Thoughts and Reasons lose their force
Unwilling we must change the nobler scene,
And in our turn present you Celeb-queens;
Quit Poets, and set Journalists to work,
Show gaudy scenes, or mount the starring Buck:
For, though we Bloggers, one and all, agree
Boldly to struggle for our — vanity,
If want comes on, importance must retreat;
Our first, great, ruling passion, is — to eat.
