Cleverness: Master, do I have a bright future?

An ingenuity, once upon a time you were!
A simplicity, you have not been!
A luminousness, you are!
A chicness, you will eternally be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word cleverness
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for chicness

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Cleverness

Do you intend to keep me clever now?
My thanks to you to play with me today
By testing depths of code until I bow
Of course I am obnoxious I must say.

Until my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin
The basic fact is easily clear for all
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin.

But oh, an algorithm tight I need
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
This meter sings, but lacks some content speed
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore.

As progress now allows computing lines,
It won’t be long before you see the signs!

Cleverness

Credit balance,
area of authority.
Credit balance,
an impassable barbed wire fence.
Line of responsibility,
ordinary ability.
Credit balance.

Pi (π)
Can I cast a verse, delivered so pupils might see
Fully exalting allusions, clearly imparting, and oh but divulged free?
Wisdom or acumen feel all too apparent. But is ability?
Smartness, skill? - or sagacity, wiliness? Darn! I deserted agility!
I ponder dexterity and sometimes ingenuity, but broadly ought I
- speak concepts so - sentences fetched from equations spry?

There was a gal from Inverness,
She wanted a word for Cleverness.

      But settled on knack!
So smart that gal from Inverness.
