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

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

Can I pass a verse, committed so crowds might see
Newly cheerful abstracts, merrily imparting, and oh now evermore free?
Boring or dimmer feel all too manifest. But is fainted?
Inanimate, faint? - or listless, deceased? Damn! I neglected sainted!
I ponder bloodless and therefore powerless, but plainly ought I
- crank meanings so - notations crafted with equations spry?
