Atrophies: Master, am I rare?

Deteriorations, in every other way you were!
Contractions, you have been!
Imperfections, you are!
Prostrations, you will constantly be!

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

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

Can I pass a verse, published so pupils might see
Terse pleasant notations, somehow informing, and oh but divulged free?
Wither or shrink look way too manifest. But is failing?
Atrophied, decay? - or languish, marasmus? Oops! I neglected falling!
I wonder atrophies and similarly withering, but frankly ought I
- found concepts oh - allusions drafted with computers spry?
