Claw: Master, what does the future hold?

A sweetener, before this poem you were!
A doctor, you have not been!
A crotchet, you are!
A bait, you will unendingly be!

Xenia Epigram
To claw I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like hooking
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using nestling

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

Waka
Just like the flexes,
they're inaccurately bad.
No, never artless!
To rascal, scamp or blackguard.
A bishop's staff of office.

Claw

Get the picture,

Get the picture,
this is the ultimate pleasure.
I want to be able to sing,
to pack in a box for shipping.
Get the picture.

Pi (π)
Can I fake a rhyme, furnished so crowds might see
Newly inviting abstracts, somehow nurturing, and oh but imparted free?
Clutch or nipper feel all too apparent. But is clipper?
Pitchfork, talon? - or fastener, picklock? Darn! I neglected flipper!
I ponder connector and certainly paperclip, but rightly ought I
- state concepts so - abstracts crafted with equations spry?

There was a young gal from Chalon,
She needed a word for talon.
