Unsteady, you have been!

Erratic, you will continuously be!

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

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

Pi (π)
Can I cast a poesy, disclosed so beings might see
Fully inviting notations, thereby educating, and oh now divulged free?
Falter or wobble feel way too absolute. But is stagger?
Vacillate, waver? - or wavering, wobbling? Darn! I neglected swagger!
I reckon tottering and similarly fluctuate, but happily ought I
- throw concepts so - sentences drafted with equations spry?
