Xenia Epigram
To athletes I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like boxers
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using players

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Terse charming overviews, notably nurturing, and oh how bestowed free?
Fiends or rights seem way too apparent. But is backers?
Chasseurs, jocks? - or fighters, bellhops? Darn! I excluded bankers!
I reason straights and therefore sportsmen, but plainly ought I
- blurt meanings so - sentences crafted from equations spry?
