Ghastly: Master, can I become alluring?

Frightful, before this poem you were!

Hideous, you will unendingly be!

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

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

Can I show a meter, disclosed so people might see
Terse pleasant notations, vaguely imparting, and oh how imparted free?
Dismal or grisly look all too manifest. But is fateful?
Frightful, nasty? - or horrible, gruesome? Damn! I neglected hateful!
I reason appalling and similarly monstrous, but rightly ought I
- blurt concepts so - sentences fetched with computers spry?
