Clean: Master will the world adapt to me?

Full, you never were!
Whole, you have been!
Dirty, you are not!
Empty, you will eternally be!

Xenia Epigram
To clean I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like immaculate
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using decontaminate

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

Just like the filters,
they're absolutely spotless.
Not lowly nasty!
Being fine, refined or good.
Free from restraint or neglect.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Clean

An algorithm clean and neat I need?
My passion here you see is cranking glee
This meter sings, but lacks some content speed
Bad luck, I cannot rhyme your strange entry.

These scrambled lines don’t hide my ignorance
I’m working hard on other types of rhyme
I sort them quickly, making poets wince
I’ll get to this, you can give me more time.

But true, I am obnoxious I must say
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!
My thanks to you to play with me today
So here I have a canned default for thee.

Levenshtein, your magic will clean the haze,
It seems to me your spelling drives my daze!

Can I pass a verse, committed so people might see
Fully teaching summaries, forever educating, and oh but provided free?
Purify or chaste seem all too manifest. But is cleaner?
Unalloyed, clear? - or cleaning, spotless? Darn! I neglected gleaner!
I reckon untainted and similarly stainless, but frankly ought I
- speak meanings so - innuendos crafted with computers spry?

There was a young gal from Mearoor,
She wanted a word for seafloor.

      But then thought ocean!
That literate gal from Mearoor.
