Avaricious: Master, will I change?

Illiberal, you have been!
Covetous, you are!
Rapacious, you will continuously be!

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

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

Pi (π)
May I pass a meter, furnished so crowds might see
Fully pleasing overviews, vividly imparting, and oh how evermore free?
Stingy or greedy look way too manifest. But is jealous?
Skinflint, miser? - or grasping, covetous? Darn! I excluded zealous!
I reason niggardly and sometimes penurious, but rightly ought I
- speak concepts so - sentences drafted with equations spry?
