Abate: Master, can I change?

Dim, you have been!

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

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

Never ascending!

Can I pass a poesy, published so pupils might see
Newly engaging summaries, clearly informing, and oh but divulged free?
Reduce or lessen feel all too absolute. But is depress?
Alleviate, lower? - or diminish, decrease? Damn! I neglected repress!
I reckon lessening and otherwise economize, but plainly ought I
- crank concepts so - innuendos fetched with equations spry?

There was a lad from Camp Lassen,
He needed a word for lessen.

So smart that man from Camp Lassen.
