Lurch: Master, can I change?

A scruple, before time you never were!
A disposal, you have been!
A huckster, you are!
A transfer, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
To lurch I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like keel
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using reel

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

Pi (π)
Can I cast a meter, proclaimed so pupils might see
Newly inviting notations, crudely imparting, and oh but evermore free?
Wobble or totter look all too manifest. But is stagger?
Tottering, swing? - or lurching, penchant? Oops! I neglected swagger!
I ponder oscillate and otherwise beguiling, but rightly ought I
- throw concepts so - summaries drafted from equations spry?

There was a gal from Oak Hill Curch,
And she wanted a word for lurch.

So smart that girl from Oak Hill Curch.
