Alibi: Master, am I palliative?

An extenuation, you were!
A vindication, you have been!
An apology, you are!
A plea, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To alibi I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like apologize
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using rationalize

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Can I make a verse, committed so crowds might see
Terse teaching summaries, broadly informing, and oh how revealed free?
Pardon or acquit look all too manifest. But is consent?
Apologize, remit? - or pretence, dispense? Damn! I excluded content!
I reckon exculpate and similarly remission, but rightly ought I
- found meanings so - summaries fetched with computers spry?

There was a young dude from Marcuse,
He needed a word for excuse.
