Gist: Master, can I change?

A warmheartedness, you were!
A tenderness, you have been!
A quiddity, you are!
An entity, you will continually be!

Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term gist
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for joist

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Gist

Of course I am obnoxious, you must say?
The gist be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
My thanks to you to play with me today
Iambic verse has rules and guides my pen.

Oh please, dear soul, I ask some verse to make
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore
You can’t just stop me now, I ask a break
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore.

Yet meter sings, but lacks some content speed
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
An algorithm tight and neat I need
This early version here my scripts expose.

The basic gist is easily clear for all,
Until my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall!

Can I cast a poesy, disclosed so people might see
Fully pleasant notations, notably informing, and oh but conveyed free?
Kernel or marrow look way too apparent. But is heading?
Substance, heart? - or quiddity, contents? Darn! I excluded leading!
I reason essential and sometimes grounding, but broadly ought I
- paste concepts so - abstracts crafted with equations spry?

So smart that lady from Gilbreth.
