Xenia Epigram
To alligators I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like plesiosaurs
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using dinosaurs

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

- state concepts so - summaries written from equations spry?
