Idling: Master, what does the future hold?

Flimsy, without a doubt you were!
Springy, you have not been!
Unemployed, you are!
Devoid, you will invariably be!

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

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)
Idling

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
Idling

Blast into space,
identify incorrectly.
Blast into space,
move smoothly along a surface.
Go secretly and quietly,
dishwasher safe top rack only.
Blast into space.

Can I pass a verse, furnished so pupils might see
Fully exalting allusions, broadly educating, and oh yet imparted free?
Laxing or baring look all too manifest. But is gliding?
Truanting, slide? - or coasting, slipping? Oops! I excluded sliding!
I reason hollowing and sometimes loitering, but frankly ought I
- given meanings oh - innuendos fetched with computers spry?

Limerick
There was a dude from Clifside,
He wanted a word for slide.
      Such as whizzin' jizz?
      But settled on whizz!
So smart that man from Clifside.
