Failing: Master, can I change?

An acquirement, before written words you never were!
An endowment, you have not been!
A competence, you are not!
A discontinuance, you will unceasingly be!

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

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

they're triumphantly flaccid.
Not freely utter!

Can I pass a poesy, published so pupils might see
Newly edifying innuendos, perhaps informing, and oh how provided free?
Defect or foible feel all too absolute. But is bumping?
Infirmity, fault? - or aborting, weakness? Damn! I excluded dumping!
I wonder defeating and similarly betraying, but frankly ought I
- crank meanings so - notations written with equations spry?

There was a lad from Claverack,
He needed a word for clawback.
      Could it be wailing?
      But then thought failing!
So smart that man from Claverack.
