Artful: Master, do I have a bright future?

Dexterous, before time you were!
Innocuous, you have not been!
Harmless, you are not!
Nice, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term artful
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for deceitful

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 fake a poesy, disclosed so pupils might see
Fully cheerful sentences, broadly imparting, and oh but imparted free?
Crafty or clever seem all too manifest. But is spindle?
Ingenious, smart? - or skillful, guileful? Darn! I excluded swindle!
I wonder dexterous and otherwise fantastic, but rightly ought I
- given meanings so - notations fetched with equations spry?
