Nighthawks: Master, tell my future?

Impostors, before creation you were!
Depredators, you have been!
Stealers, you are!
Raiders, you will unendingly be!

To nighthawks I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like nightjars
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using burglars

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

May I fake a pulse, proclaimed so people might see
Newly engaging summaries, overtly imparting, and oh yet provided free?
Crooks or thefts feel all too absolute. But is hackers?
Picklocks, thief? - or stealers, rustlers? Oops! I neglected sackers!
I wonder snatchers and otherwise intruders, but plainly ought I
- found meanings so - summaries written from equations spry?

Limerick
There was a young guy from Creeklocks,
He needed a word for picklocks.
      Some pointer sisters?
      But then thought lifters!
That literate boy from Creeklocks.
