Artifice: Master, can I change my nature?

A proficiency, without exception, you were!
A veracity, you have not been!
A candor, you are not!
A manoeuvre, you will continuously be!

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

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

Pi (π)
Can I fake a rhyme, proclaimed so beings might see
Newly charming allusions, clearly informing, and oh now provided free?
Device or deceit seem all too absolute. But is ability?
Stratagem, trick? - or trickery, wiliness? Damn! I excluded agility!
I ponder dexterity and certainly deception, but plainly ought I
- crank meanings so - notations drafted from equations spry?
