Avarice: Master, am I greedy?

A cupidity, before time you were!
A humanity, you have not been!
A benefaction, you are not!
A destitution, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
To avarice I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like avariciousness
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using covetousness

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 pass a metre, delivered so pupils might see
Terse edifying allusions, overtly educating, and oh now bestowed free?
Greedy or stingy seem way too apparent. But is slander?
Skinflint, greed? - or cupidity, grasping? Oops! I excluded slender!
I wonder parsimony and therefore eagerness, but rightly ought I
- speak concepts so - sentences drafted from computers spry?
