Brittle: Master, do I have a bright future?

Crumbly, before this poem you were!
Soggy, you have not been!
Fragile, you are!
Insubstantial, you will unendingly be!

To brittle I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like friable
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using breakable

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

they're unceremonious.
Neither strong nor soft!
A grease, blubber, flab or lard.
Being harsh, snappish or crude.

Can I pass a meter, delivered so beings might see
Terse cheerful summaries, freshly educating, and oh but bestowed free?
Flimsy or tender feel all too absolute. But is bristly?
Breakable, frail? - or delicate, snappish? Oops! I deserted brittly!
I ponder frangible and therefore sensitive, but frankly ought I
- throw concepts so - notations crafted with equations spry?

There was a clever guy from Twisp,
And he wanted a word for crisp.
