Clamp: Master, do I have a bright future?

A convulsion, without exception, you were!
A liberation, you have not been!
A release, you are not!
A parenthesis, you will continuously be!

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

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

they're restrainingly steady.
Neither free nor bare!

To assemble or install.

Can I give a metre, furnished so people might see
Fully pleasing innuendos, eagerly educating, and oh but evermore free?
Fasten or buckle seem all too absolute. But is enclose?
Fastening, clasp? - or clamping, compress? Darn! I deserted inclose!
I reason determine and otherwise constrict, but plainly ought I
- given meanings so - notations crafted with computers spry?

There was a young guy from Masten,
He wanted a word for fasten.
      He thought of a peach,
      But then thought attach!
