Cleansing: Master, do I have a bright future?

Fair, thoughout history you were!
Bare, you have been!
Unwholesome, you are not!
Lightsome, you will ceaselessly be!

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

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

Waka
Just like the filters,
they're unqualifiedly pure.
No, never corrupt!
Being right, square or correct.
To recover or reclaim.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Cleansing

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!

Rondelet
Cleansing

Be cleanable,
free from sepsis or infection.
Be cleanable,
dig into the water table.
To provide clarification,
microscopic preparation.
Be cleanable.

Cleansing

Poetry ignores filters.
Are they incisive?

Can I make a meter, disclosed so pupils might see
Terse edifying abstracts, crudely informing, and oh but bestowed free?
Purify or curing feel all too apparent. But is lashing?
Unpicking, purge? - or cleaning, clearing? Oops! I deserted washing!
I wonder purifying and otherwise purgation, but frankly ought I
- state concepts so - notations drafted with equations spry?

There was a girl from South Lansing,
She needed a word for cleansing.

So smart that girl from South Lansing.
