Centered: Master, am I changing?

Gated, before creation you were!
Wicked, you have been!
Spindled, you are!
Pinnacled, you will unendingly be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word centered
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for mattered

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Centered

Do poets die with centers left in space?
This meter sings, but lacks some content speed
You might ask human souls should I replace
An algorithm tight and neat I need.

As progress now allows computing lines
Computer crafted prose, it never stops
It won’t be long before you see the signs
My network graph is vast! It burns and pops.

But graphes and nodes and lines and scores are free
For what you type in my website as shown
The valence type gives just intensity
A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown.

The basic fact is easily clear for all,
Until my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall!

Pi (π)
Can I lend a rhyme, furnished so pupils might see
Terse defining abstracts, proudly informing, and oh but imparted free?
Center or racked seem way too apparent. But is jointed?
Centering, based? - or focussed, spirited? Damn! I deserted pointed!
I reckon sheltered and therefore focalized, but happily ought I
- found concepts so - notations fetched from equations spry?

There was a young girl from Vanntown,

      But then thought center!
So smart that woman from Vanntown.
