Crosshead: Master, what will come of me?

A sheepskin, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To crosshead I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like brain
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using chieftain

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Neither sweet nor meek!

May I lend a verse, proclaimed so people might see
Newly teaching sentences, proudly informing, and oh but revealed free?
Slider or scroll feel all too absolute. But is crosier?
Condenser, cross? - or lacrosse, shoulder? Darn! I excluded crozier!
I ponder chieftain and similarly executive, but happily ought I
- state meanings oh - abstracts written from equations spry?

There was a gal from Lionshead,
She needed a word for crosshead.
      Such as womb raider?
      But then thought slider!
So smart that gal from Lionshead.
