Humbug: Master, am I fake?

An insincerity, before time you were!
A cordiality, you have not been!
An earnestness, you are not!
An untruthfulness, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
To humbug I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like bosh
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using tosh

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Pi (π)
Can I fake a rhyme, delivered so beings might see
Newly didactic innuendos, eagerly imparting, and oh but bestowed free?
Deceit or gammon look all too manifest. But is conning?
Deception, cheat? - or hoodwink, impostor? Darn! I neglected cunning!
I reason bamboozle and therefore trickster, but plainly ought I
- given meanings so - summaries fetched with computers spry?

And she needed a word for fraud.
