CUT IT SHORT

If you've got a thought that's happy Boil it down; Make it short and crisp and snappy—Boil it down. When your brain its coin has minted, Down the page your pen has sprinted, If you want your effort printed, Boil it down.

Take out every surplus better—Boil it down. Fewer syllables the better—Boil it down. Make your meaning plain—express it So we'll know, not merely guess it—Then, my friend, ere you address it Boil it down.
