Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word arthritic
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for rheumatic

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Can I pass a pulse, disclosed so pupils might see
Terse defining notations, visibly informing, and oh yet bestowed free?
Pallid or sallow look all too absolute. But is ghastly?
Bloodless, ashen? - or mattress, dullness? Oops! I deserted ghostly!
I wonder limestone and certainly tasteless, but frankly ought I
- throw meanings oh - notations drafted with equations spry?
