Epidemic: Master, is there a universal truth?

An explosion, you were!
An induction, you have been!
A disease, you are!
A craze, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To epidemic I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like contagious
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using infectious

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

Can I lend a poesy, committed so pupils might see
Terse teaching notations, vaguely informing, and oh but evermore free?
Plague or pestis feel way too absolute. But is plagues?
Pandemics, pests? - or diseases, epidemic? Damn! I deserted plaques!
I reckon outbreaks and certainly outbursts, but plainly ought I
- state concepts oh - notations crafted from computers spry?
