The Subtle Line Between Merely Bad and Absolutely Terrible

"I think, therefore I am," quod he to me.
Said I, "But what happens if your mind goes blank?
And quoting others takes no thought, I think.
To put another's words in verse is worse
than keeping silent, or so I believe."

I sense layers of irony.

Kevin! Good of you to visit. I tried to post a comment on your blog a couple of weeks back, but it must have perished in the last Covid.

By the way, Doesn't "Covid" sound like one of Santa's reindeer?"

Covid probably took over for Rudolph.

Do you have an address to which I can mail you a book?

Send me an email, and I'll send it back with the secret address. I'll also send the secret decoder ring since you lost the next-to-last one in the gymnasium. Oh, I assume that we're talking about that secret thing that we're planning to do that'll make us a lot of money. Don't be a blabbering mouth this time. Be quiet about this thing since we're sure to get rich if we're careful. Finally, don't loiter around the bank like last time, or they'll recognize you. Also, don't dress up in a clown suit again unless it's a different clown suit.

I'll disguise my name in this email:

Geoffrey Rogerson

Off topic, but of interest. Please tell the world!

(er, "clown suit"?)
