Keep: Master, can I change?

A violence, without a doubt you never were!
A defense, you have been!
A security, you are!
A custody, you will perpetually be!

Xenia Epigram
To keep I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like retain
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using maintain

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Keep

Do you intend to keep me busy now?
A graph and edge and node and scores are free
By testing depths of code until I bow
The valence type gives just intensity.

I’ll keep to this, you can give me more time
I’m lost! So ask me now for verse on this
I’m working hard on other types of rhyme
It’s hard inventing it, for I will miss.

But keep on waiting long, I hope you stay
Until my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall
To churn such verse a billion times a day
The basic fact is easily clear for all.

I pass my life to keep more time to write,
In finding just the verse for your delight!

Can I make a rhyme, committed so crowds might see
Terse didactic notations, freshly informing, and oh but provided free?
Retain or detain look all too absolute. But is depress?
Persevere, abide? - or maintain, preserve? Darn! I excluded repress!
I wonder safeguard and otherwise concealed, but frankly ought I
- blurt meanings so - summaries written with equations spry?

Limerick
There was a girl from Mount Plantain,
She needed a word for maintain.
      Perhaps it is schlort?
      But then thought support!
So smart that gal from Mount Plantain.
