Croak: Master, is that all there is?

A mortality, you were!
A disloyalty, you have been!
A throttle, you are!
A rattle, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To croak I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like faint
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using plaint

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

May I cast a rhyme, disclosed so crowds might see
Terse pleasant overviews, visibly imparting, and oh but divulged free?
Murmur or mutter seem all too manifest. But is chatter?
Complaint, growl? - or croaking, complain? Damn! I deserted clatter!
I ponder suffocate and otherwise mortality, but happily ought I
- blurt meanings so - summaries drafted with computers spry?

There was a young gal from Buroak,
And she wanted a word for croak.
      Like monthly trouble?
      But then thought grumble!
So smart that woman from Buroak.
