Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term alternates
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for reciprocates

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Can I lend a meter, delivered so people might see
Fully engaging allusions, plainly imparting, and oh yes bestowed free?
Others or spares feel all too apparent. But is springs?
Alternate, vices? - or standbys, switches? Damn! I excluded strings!
I reason variables and sometimes stand-ins, but rightly ought I
- blurt concepts so - summaries fetched with equations spry?
