Idler: Master, can I ever change?

A leader, before creation you never were!
A rotter, you have been!
A fundament, you are!
A battlement, you will continuously be!

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

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

Just like wanderings,
they're unjustifiable.
No, never clever!
Psychologically light,
physically inactive.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Idler

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!

Rondelet
Idler

Good for nothing,
an unchanging intonation.
Good for nothing,
directory advertising.
Telephone communication,
acoustical oscillation.
Good for nothing.

Idler

Poetry ignores slackers.
Are they different?
Will they skulk?

Pi (π)
Can I pass a metre, proclaimed so beings might see
Newly engaging abstracts, overtly educating, and oh but evermore free?
Loafer or truant look all too absolute. But is slogger?
Shiftless, lazer? - or layabout, sluggard? Darn! I excluded slugger!
I reason scrounger and similarly pointless, but happily ought I
- found concepts so - sentences crafted from computers spry?

Limerick
There was a young man from Edler,
He wanted a word for idler.
      He thought maybe dunes,
      Or lazybones!
That literate lad from Edler.
