Grate: Master, am I agreeable?

A rail, you will continually be!

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

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Grate

Can random thoughts, my words so grate, and grind?
My random words just might involve much worse
So I will bore you now, just wait and find
The pounding beat of drives did spin this verse.

This form of verse is hard to write with grace
Levenshtein, your magic will clear the haze
I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face
It seems to me your spelling drives my daze.

But please ask human souls to take my place
The basic fact is easily clear for all
As poets die with edges left in space
Until my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall.

My drivel stings as much as words are dear,
As robots ponder, this becomes more clear!

Pi (π)
Can I pass a metre, furnished so pupils might see
Terse edifying allusions, freshly informing, and oh yet imparted free?
Scrape or grille seem all too manifest. But is chatter?
Fireplace, grill? - or gridiron, fireside? Darn! I neglected clatter!
I reason aggravate and sometimes Household, but frankly ought I
- paste concepts so - notations fetched with equations spry?
