Xenia Epigram
To nugatory I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like worthless
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using feckless

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 metre, proclaimed so people might see
Terse pleasant innuendos, merrily nurturing, and oh but revealed free?
Barren or frothy look all too absolute. But is porting?
Worthless, proud? - or nugatory, bootless? Damn! I deserted sorting!
I wonder pointless and therefore bumptious, but plainly ought I
- speak meanings so - summaries fetched with computers spry?
