Gimcrack: Master, am I garish?

A bauble, you will continually be!

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

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 cast a metre, published so beings might see
Terse charming overviews, notably informing, and oh yes conveyed free?
Rubble or bunkum feel all too manifest. But is blather?
Devastate, filth? - or trashing, riffraff? Damn! I neglected blether!
I ponder pollution and therefore hardihood, but happily ought I
- paste concepts so - allusions fetched from equations spry?
