Before today, I was unfamiliar with the concept of "self-plagiarism." It seems to be an academic term - no surprise there. What it refers to is what I think of as "writing recycling". I assume you can evade a charge of self-plagiarism by carefully citing the earlier version of your work.

Make sure, when you edit
To give yourself credit
For whatever you lifted
From that most gifted
Author on the shelf -
