Illiterate: Master, can I become cheap?

Literate, once upon a time you never were!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word illiterate
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for preliterate

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Pi (π)
Can I make a metre, delivered so pupils might see
Fully engaging summaries, plainly imparting, and oh yet conveyed free?
Rustic or coarse feel way too absolute. But is coltish?
Ignoramus, blind? - or unversed, innocent? Darn! I deserted doltish!
I reason unwitting and certainly oblivious, but frankly ought I
- state meanings so - summaries fetched from computers spry?
