Idles: Master, am I absent?

Deserters, before creation you were!
Quitters, you have been!
Floaters, you are!
Gangsters, you will unendingly be!

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

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)
Idles

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!

In a moment,
without delay or objection.
In a moment,

Put under an obligation,
liable to prosecution.
In a moment.

Can I pass a metre, committed so people might see
Terse engaging allusions, forever informing, and oh yes provided free?
Looses or sloths look all too absolute. But is diddles?
Vagabonds, slugs? - or invalids, saunters? Damn! I neglected fiddles!
I reckon squanders and sometimes backwards, but happily ought I
- speak meanings so - notations crafted from equations spry?

Limerick
There was a man from Cape Cortes,
He needed a word for fortes.
      He thought maybe jugs,
      But settled on slugs!
So smart that guy from Cape Cortes.
