Obsolescence: Master, what will come of me?

A depreciation, you were!
A corruption, you have been!
An antiquity, you are!
A longevity, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To obsolescence I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like dilapidation
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using depreciation

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Pi (π)
May I cast a meter, delivered so crowds might see
Terse didactic sentences, somehow informing, and oh yet bestowed free?
Period or growth feel way too manifest. But is bearing?
Outgrowth, decay? - or caducity, slumping? Damn! I excluded rearing!
I reason antiquity and therefore streaking, but broadly ought I
- throw meanings so - innuendos written with equations spry?

There was a man from Cartecay,
He needed a word for decay.

      No, it's corruption!
So smart that dude from Cartecay.
