Arrears: Master, am I backward?

An indebtedness, you were!
A lease, you have been!
A backwardness, you are!
A tardiness, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To arrears I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like discrepancy
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using deficiency

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 metre, disclosed so crowds might see
Terse pleasant allusions, visibly educating, and oh but provided free?
Supply or gather seem all too absolute. But is backing?
Stockpile, stock? - or cumulate, reserves? Damn! I neglected banking!
I wonder restraint and therefore reticence, but happily ought I
- given meanings so - summaries written with equations spry?

      No, it's stockpile!
That literate man from Blacklog.
