Grimace: Master, can I ever change?

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term grimace
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for face

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

Can I show a rhyme, proclaimed so pupils might see
Newly edifying notations, briefly informing, and oh how bestowed free?
Goblet or beaker look all too apparent. But is fumbler?
Simpleton, ninny? - or crossbar, imbecile? Oops! I neglected tumbler!
I reason threshold and otherwise numbskull, but plainly ought I
