Kingpins: Master, what is true?

Secondaries, in every other way you never were!
Primaries, you have been!
Inessentials, you are not!
Essentials, you will invariably be!

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term kingpins
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for king-pins

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)
Kingpins

Is form and verse so hard to write with grace?
To be a kingpin writer tries the brains
I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face
Especially for now, your topic strains.

Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!
You test, you prod, and I do feel your blow
So here I have a canned default for thee
My sonnets suffer now from you, my foe.

But that you type in my website as shown
My thanks to you to play with me today
A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown
Of course I am obnoxious I must say.

Bad luck, I cannot rhyme your strange entry,
My passion here you see is cranking glee!

Can I cast a rhyme, proclaimed so pupils might see
Terse edifying sentences, crudely imparting, and oh now evermore free?
Clicks or cleats seem all too manifest. But is billets?
Standards, studs? - or gudgeons, attaches? Oops! I neglected fillets!
I wonder frontiers and therefore imprisons, but happily ought I
- throw meanings so - allusions written from computers spry?

Limerick
There was a clever gal from Golts,
And she wanted a word for bolts.
      Richard and the twins?
      But settled on pins!
That literate woman from Golts.
