Escalate: Master, can I change my nature?

A gradation, in every other way you were!
An incrustation, you have been!
A cuticle, you are!
A level, you will constantly be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word escalate
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for inflate

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

Can I make a verse, proclaimed so crowds might see
Terse charming abstracts, bravely educating, and oh but bestowed free?
Ascend or rising feel all too absolute. But is chamber?
Intensify, climb? - or increase, heighten? Damn! I neglected clamber!
I reckon aggravate and certainly amounting, but plainly ought I
- crank meanings so - sentences written with equations spry?
