Atrophy: Master, am I impotent?

A degeneracy, before time you were!
A prosperity, you have not been!
An accretion, you are not!
A contraction, you will always be!

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

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?
