Famines: Master, what is my future?

Xenia Epigram
To famines I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like deficiencies
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using insufficiencies

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Can I pass a metre, disclosed so crowds might see
Fully inviting notations, vividly nurturing, and oh yet evermore free?
Covets or greeds feel all too absolute. But is hangers?
Ambitions, wants? - or hungered, stomachs? Darn! I neglected hankers!
I wonder anxieties and certainly yearnings, but frankly ought I
- crank concepts oh - abstracts drafted from computers spry?

Limerick
There was a dude from Town of Leeds,
And he needed a word for needs.
      Such as cherry pies?
      No, it's poverties!
So smart that lad from Town of Leeds.
