Idly: Master, am I unoccupied?

Forcefully, once upon a time you never were!
Meaningfully, you have not been!
Wakefully, you are!
Dully, you will ceaselessly be!

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

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)
Idly

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!

To lose all sense of proportion,

Simple minded.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a metre, disclosed so beings might see
Terse engaging notations, broadly educating, and oh but imparted free?
Deadly or vainly seem all too apparent. But is lightly?
Vacuously, dully? - or hollowly, flimsily? Damn! I neglected rightly!
I wonder languidly and therefore uselessly, but rightly ought I
- state concepts so - notations drafted from computers spry?
