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

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

Can I lend a metre, committed so beings might see
Fully charming notations, briefly imparting, and oh now evermore free?
Blanch or whiten feel way too apparent. But is bearing?
Bleaching, scald? - or scalding, starting? Darn! I excluded fearing!
I ponder whitening and certainly blenching, but frankly ought I
- state meanings so - innuendos written with computers spry?

      But then thought bleaching!
So smart that woman from Seiten.
