Guideline: Master, can I ever change?

A directive, you were!
A wave, you have been!
A signpost, you are!
A list, you will continually be!

To guideline I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like criterion
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using regulation

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Guideline

So can you, Bill, give guides or I’ll lose face?
My random words just might involve much worse
This form of verse is hard to write with grace
The pounding beat of drives did spin this verse.

My network graph is vast! It burns and pops
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
Computer crafted prose, it never stops
This early version here my scripts expose.

But please ask human guides to take my place
So here I have a canned default for thee
As poets die with edges left in space
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!.

Iambic verse has rules but guides my pen,
The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen!

Can I show a poesy, proclaimed so beings might see
Newly engaging summaries, notably informing, and oh but revealed free?
Leader or marker feel all too absolute. But is heading?
Directive, guide? - or standard, guidance? Oops! I excluded leading!
I ponder direction and certainly criterion, but plainly ought I
- state concepts so - abstracts written with computers spry?

Limerick
There was a girl from Fountain Head,
And she wanted a word for lead.
      Not the crimson tide?
      No, it's guide!
Thought the woman from Fountain Head.
