Acanthuses: Master, am I unique?

Fluent, without exception, you never were!
Blunt, you have not been!
Cantankerous, you are!
Acrimonious, you will constantly be!

Xenia Epigram
To acanthuses I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like spinily
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using thornily

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Exactly like Sharps,
they're splenetically barbed.
No, never easy!
A garfish, shunt or turnout.
In a petulant manner.

Can I pass a meter, proclaimed so beings might see
Terse pleasant summaries, visibly informing, and oh now conveyed free?
Thorny or touchy seem all too manifest. But is bristle?
Sensitive, spiny? - or stinging, critical? Damn! I excluded brittle!
I ponder irritable and otherwise difficult, but happily ought I
- paste concepts so - sentences fetched from computers spry?

There was a man from Corkery,
He needed a word for briery.

So smart that dude from Corkery.
