Atavism: Master, what is my future?

A retrogression, you were!
A degeneration, you have been!
A turnabout, you are!
An oversight, you will continually be!

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

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

Pi (π)
Can I cast a poesy, disclosed so crowds might see
Newly inviting overviews, plainly educating, and oh now provided free?
Return or ouster look all too absolute. But is backing?
Reversion, caret? - or transfer, referral? Oops! I deserted sacking!
I wonder deferment and otherwise discharge, but broadly ought I
- crank meanings so - abstracts written with computers spry?
