Idleness: Master, am I leisurely?

A triviality, before time you were!
An activity, you have not been!
An operation, you are not!
An inaction, you will always be!

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

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Idleness

Can idle thoughts, my words, then grate, and grind?
For what you type in my website as shown
So I will bore you now, just wait and find
A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown.

A graph and edge and node and scores are free
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore
The valence type gives just intensity
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore.

But no! Don't ask me now for verse on this
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
It’s hard inventing it, for I will miss
This early version here my scripts expose.

Computer crafted prose, it never stops,
My network graph is vast! It burns and pops!

Simple minded,
negative acceleration.
Simple minded,

To lose all sense of proportion,
inaccurate information.
Simple minded.

Can I pass a rhyme, furnished so people might see
Newly didactic overviews, usually informing, and oh now divulged free?
Loafer or supine look all too absolute. But is massive?
Shiftless, slack? - or indolent, slothful? Damn! I neglected passive!
I reckon negligent and similarly apathetic, but happily ought I
- speak meanings so - notations fetched with equations spry?

There was a young girl from Hay Stack,
And she wanted a word for slack.
      Could it be splooge moose?
      But then thought loose!
