Languish: Master, will I change?

A solicitude, in every other way you were!
A jade, you have been!
An atrophy, you are!
A decay, you will constantly be!

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

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Languish

Do sonnets languish now from you, my foe?
This meter sings, but lacks some content speed
You test, you prod, and I do feel your blow
An algorithm tight and neat I need.

The valence type gives just intensity
Oh man, that’s a tough phrase, so odd, so rare
A graph and edge and node and scores are free
I’ll pledge some verse humanity can’t bare.

But how it seems I need a gig or two
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin
A query finds and I do write for you
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin.

I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face,
This form of verse is hard to write with grace!

Pi (π)
Can I pass a pulse, proclaimed so people might see
Terse charming sentences, faintly educating, and oh how bestowed free?
Wither or weaken seem all too apparent. But is bearing?
Suffering, droop? - or diminish, withered? Damn! I deserted tearing!
I reckon weakening and certainly attenuate, but rightly ought I
- blurt concepts so - summaries drafted with computers spry?
