I found it and it did work, especially the little trick of adding an
/attrib and the poemtitle made it look well done.
I had tried the /indent thingy but couldn't get it to work; didn't
remember the // thingy.
Yes I need to get a good book; all I have is the stuff in the packages.
I'm making up a file that contains the descriptions from all the texlive
packages from dpkg (get the listing with aptitude, clean it up to just
the package names, then pipe it through xargs to dpkg -p) so that I can
find out if I have a package already, then go looking for the docs. *It
seems that there's a few missing from the texdoctk/texdoc database.
Thanks all for your suggestions.
