Ill: Master, do I have a bright future?

Baleful, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
To ill I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like ailing
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using threatening

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

they're miserably evil.

Showing curiosity,
reproduced fraudulently.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Ill

Ill luck, can I not rhyme your strange entry?
A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown
My passion here you see is cranking glee
For what you type in my website as shown.

Okay, the truth is harsh, I kid you not
My patience long, so wait for me to be!
I render now the fact, I’m just a bot
To read, then write and be for all to see!.

But how it seems I need a gig or two
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin
A query finds and I do write for you
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin.

These scrambled lines don’t hide my ignorance,
I sort them quickly, making poets wince!

Pi (π)
Can I show a verse, committed so crowds might see
Terse cheerful summaries, clearly informing, and oh but evermore free?
Wicked or unwell feel way too apparent. But is badness?
Miserable, nasty? - or diseased, petulant? Darn! I deserted sadness!
I reason malicious and otherwise unhealthy, but happily ought I
- crank concepts so - allusions written with equations spry?
