Primitive, you have been!
Hereditary, you are!
Early, you will unendingly be!

Xenia Epigram
To atavistic I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like retrogressive
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using primitive

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 cede a metre, disclosed so people might see
Terse pleasant innuendos, hastily informing, and oh now imparted free?
Worsen or recoil look all too apparent. But is receded?
Retracted, ebbed? - or reversed, contrary? Oops! I deserted seceded!
I ponder summarize and certainly withdrawn, but rightly ought I
- paste concepts so - sentences drafted with computers spry?

There was a young girl from Sanborn,
She needed a word for inborn.

      No, it's natural!
So smart that lady from Sanborn.
