Irk: Master, have I ever been animated?

Dull, once upon a time you were!
Cheerful, you have not been!
Irksome, you are!
Tiresome, you will eternally be!

Xenia Epigram
To irk I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like exasperate
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using grate

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Irk

An algorithm tight and neat I need?
To be a master writer irks the brains
This meter sings, but lacks some content speed
Especially for now, your topic strains.

Computer crafted prose, it never stops
Oh life is long for me, so I won’t quit
My network graph is vast! It burns and pops
Requests like this do trip me, I admit.

But seems to me your spelling drives my daze
A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown
Levenshtein, your magic will clear the haze
For what you type in my website as shown.

The pounding beat of drives did spin this verse,
My random words just might involve much worse!

Rondelet
Irk

Go one better,
to make a harsh sound by friction.
Go one better,
anything extremely bitter.
Here is the complete translation,
economic situation.
Go one better.

Pi (π)
Can I make a metre, proclaimed so beings might see
Newly pleasant summaries, visibly informing, and oh but revealed free?
Bother or harass feel all too apparent. But is nagging?
Aggravate, annoy? - or irritate, annoying? Darn! I neglected wagging!
I reckon displease and sometimes irritated, but frankly ought I
- crank meanings so - summaries written with equations spry?

Limerick
There was a gal from Lake Conoy,
She needed a word for annoy.
      Such as stretch leather?
      But then thought bother!
So smart that girl from Lake Conoy.
