Bland: Master, am I flexible?

Insipid, thoughout history you were!
Vapid, you have been!
Explicit, you are not!
Prostrate, you will ceaselessly be!

Xenia Epigram
To bland I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like vapid
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using insipid

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Can I fake a poesy, committed so beings might see
Newly pleasant notations, hastily nurturing, and oh how conveyed free?
Gentle or tender seem all too manifest. But is lightly?
Tasteless, suave? - or gracious, pleasant? Darn! I neglected sightly!
I reason enjoyable and therefore benignant, but broadly ought I
- throw concepts so - innuendos crafted from computers spry?

There was a young girl from Rothschild,
And she wanted a word for mild.

So smart that woman from Rothschild.
