Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word knavish

     needing a term for waggish

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

Newly cheerful allusions, crudely imparting, and oh but bestowed free?
Stupid or unwise feel all too apparent. But is gawkish?
Senseless, silly? - or imbecile, sheepish? Damn! I neglected mawkish!
I reckon insensate and similarly simpleton, but happily ought I
