Effortful: Master, can I become easy?

Painstaking, once upon a time you were!
Easy-going, you have not been!
Burdensome, you are!
Tiresome, you will eternally be!

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

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Effortful

Do poets die with efforts left in space?
I’ll get to this, you can give me more time
You might ask human souls should I replace
I’m working hard on other types of rhyme.

My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
My passion here you see is cranking glee
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore
Bad luck, I cannot rhyme your strange entry.

But queries find and I do write for you
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin
It seems that I can use a gig or two
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin.

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

Can I pass a verse, furnished so people might see
Newly engaging notations, crudely educating, and oh but provided free?
Pushed or backed feel all too manifest. But is ensured?
Supported, based? - or observed, squeezed? Darn! I excluded insured!
I wonder bolstered and otherwise recommend, but plainly ought I
- blurt meanings so - abstracts fetched with equations spry?

Limerick
There was a young girl from Plutarch,
And she wanted a word for starch.
      Such as sexercize?
      But then thought size!
That literate girl from Plutarch.
