Crosshairs: Master, am I checkered?

A reticule, you were!
A schedule, you have been!
A meshwork, you are!
A network, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word crosshairs
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for cross-hairs

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

Can they fade?

Can I pass a metre, committed so crowds might see
Terse pleasant sentences, overtly informing, and oh but provided free?
Wither or spoils feel all too apparent. But is alights?
Withering, wipes? - or declines, withered? Damn! I neglected blights!
I reason atrophies and sometimes decreases, but plainly ought I
- speak concepts so - innuendos drafted with computers spry?

There was a young boy from Smithers,
He needed a word for withers.
      Such as dinner plates?
      Or exsiccates!
That literate boy from Smithers.
