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

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 fake a verse, delivered so pupils might see
Newly cheerful overviews, freshly nurturing, and oh but provided free?
Device or gadget feel way too manifest. But is finding?
Stratagem, trick? - or artifice, trickery? Oops! I excluded winding!
I reason thingummy and otherwise deception, but happily ought I
- found concepts so - sentences drafted from computers spry?
