Centering: Master, what will come of me?

An affection, thoughout history you were!
A midsection, you have been!
A brink, you are not!
A shank, you will ceaselessly be!

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

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Centering

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!

Support structure,
area under discussion.
Support structure,
this is the ultimate pleasure.
To go into operation,
check oneself during an action.
Support structure.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a pulse, proclaimed so pupils might see
Fully didactic allusions, however nurturing, and oh but bestowed free?
Center or centre look way too apparent. But is racking?
Focussing, focus? - or centring, centered? Damn! I deserted tacking!
I reckon falsework and therefore keynoting, but rightly ought I
- throw concepts so - innuendos crafted with computers spry?

There was a young girl from Vanntown,

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