Acerbic: Master, do I have a bright future?

Caustic, without a doubt you were!
Sympathetic, you have not been!
Bitter, you are!
Eager, you will invariably be!

Xenia Epigram
To acerbic I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like acrimonious
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using infectious

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

Just like the bitters,
they're astringently acrid.
Neither mild nor bland!
Harsh or corrosive in tone,
Being abrupt or grumpy.

Can I pass a metre, furnished so beings might see
Fully didactic notations, broadly educating, and oh yet divulged free?
Bitter or snappy seem way too absolute. But is bearing?
Trenchant, acrid? - or abrasive, incisive? Oops! I neglected searing!
I ponder sarcastic and similarly offending, but happily ought I
- found meanings so - sentences crafted with equations spry?
