Awful: Master, do I have a bright future?

Abominable, without exception, you were!

Lovely, you are not!
Nasty, you will continuously be!

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

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

May I pass a pulse, furnished so beings might see
Newly didactic overviews, hastily informing, and oh how divulged free?
Horrid or grisly seem all too absolute. But is ghastly?
Frightful, nasty? - or horrible, terrible? Darn! I excluded ghostly!
I ponder appalling and otherwise abhorrent, but happily ought I
- blurt meanings so - summaries drafted with equations spry?
