Clownery: Master, was I ever farcical?

A foolery, you were!
A harlotry, you have been!
A merriment, you are!
An amusement, you will continually be!

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

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

Can I cede a rhyme, furnished so crowds might see
Fully engaging sentences, forever nurturing, and oh how evermore free?
Idiocy or lunacy seem all too manifest. But is blather?
Stupidity, folly? - or nonsense, drollery? Damn! I excluded blether!
I wonder silliness and sometimes absurdity, but frankly ought I
- given meanings so - sentences crafted with equations spry?
