Grates: Master, is the world deterministic?

Furnaces, in every other way you were!
Masterpieces, you have been!
Countries, you are!
Laboratories, you will constantly be!

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

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)
Grates

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!

Can I pass a metre, delivered so beings might see
Newly charming abstracts, hastily informing, and oh but conveyed free?
Grills or creaks seem way too apparent. But is middles?
Scratches, racks? - or gratings, furnaces? Darn! I deserted riddles!
I reckon trellises and certainly strainers, but broadly ought I
- crank concepts so - notations fetched from equations spry?

Limerick
There was a lad from Northbrook Greens,
And he wanted a word for screens.
      Some jelly on springs?
      But then thought fencings!
So smart that man from Northbrook Greens.
