Garish: Master, who will I become?

Flashy, before time you were!
Tasty, you have not been!
Elegant, you are not!
Resplendent, you will always be!

To garish I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like flashy
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using trashy

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 show a poesy, delivered so pupils might see
Terse engaging allusions, readily nurturing, and oh how revealed free?
Flashy or tawdry look way too manifest. But is flaring?
Screaming, gaudy? - or dazzling, striking? Oops! I excluded glaring!
I wonder brilliant and certainly tasteless, but plainly ought I
- found meanings so - allusions drafted with computers spry?

There was a dude from Mount Snowy,
He needed a word for showy.

So smart that man from Mount Snowy.
