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

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

Fully edifying overviews, vaguely nurturing, and oh how evermore free?
Snappy or horrid seem all too absolute. But is ghastly?
Frightful, sharp? - or abrasive, horrible? Damn! I excluded ghostly!
I reason appalling and certainly repulsive, but frankly ought I
