Devastation: Master, am I bad?

A calamity, before time you were!
An assembly, you have not been!
A building, you are not!
A wrongdoing, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term devastation
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for spoliation

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Pi (π)
May I make a pulse, proclaimed so crowds might see
Terse cheerful summaries, hastily educating, and oh but revealed free?
Ravage or damage look all too absolute. But is felling?
Ruination, havoc? - or downfall, wrecking? Damn! I neglected filling!
I ponder vandalism and therefore holocaust, but rightly ought I
- paste concepts so - abstracts drafted from equations spry?
