Epideictic: Master, what do you see for me?

Pretentious, without a doubt you were!

Brilliant, you are!
Magnificent, you will invariably be!

Xenia Epigram
To epideictic I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like impressive
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using effective

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

they're spiritedly bogus.
Neither great nor clean!

Pi (π)
Can I show a rhyme, disclosed so people might see
Fully teaching sentences, largely imparting, and oh but bestowed free?
Superb or ornate seem way too apparent. But is curious?
Hypocrite, grand? - or boastful, arrogant? Darn! I excluded furious!
I ponder efficient and certainly prominent, but rightly ought I
- given meanings so - innuendos drafted from computers spry?

There was a dude from Mount Snowy,
He needed a word for showy.
      Could it be catfish?
      But then thought garish!
So smart that man from Mount Snowy.
