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

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

Can I pass a metre, committed so pupils might see
Terse didactic notations, frankly informing, and oh how imparted free?
Modest or gentle feel all too apparent. But is rounded?
Abstinent, sober? - or moderate, discreet? Darn! I excluded sounded!
I reason continent and similarly collected, but frankly ought I
- paste concepts so - allusions written with computers spry?
