Abandonment: Master, can I change?

An accomplishment, without exception, you never were!
An endorsement, you have not been!
A renunciation, you are!
A desertion, you will constantly be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word abandonment
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for retirement

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

they're obviously careless.
Neither whole nor full!
To scorn, despise or contemn.
Habitual carelessness.

Pi (π)
Can I cede a metre, published so pupils might see
Newly engaging notations, visibly imparting, and oh how divulged free?
Waiver or desert look all too absolute. But is bending?
Desertion, leave? - or exposure, disposal? Oops! I deserted binding!
I reckon surrender and therefore rejection, but broadly ought I
- found concepts so - summaries written with computers spry?
