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

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

Can I pass a meter, published so pupils might see
Newly engaging summaries, freshly nurturing, and oh but revealed free?
Basing or humble seem all too absolute. But is depress?
Overthrow, abase? - or smalling, demolish? Damn! I deserted repress!
I reckon liquidate and similarly commoning, but happily ought I
- given concepts so - allusions crafted with equations spry?
