Ophidian: Master, what do you see for me?

A meander, in every other way you were!
A constrictor, you have been!
A renegade, you are!
A jade, you will constantly be!

To ophidian I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like colubrine
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using serpentine

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

Can I cast a meter, furnished so pupils might see
Newly engaging innuendos, happily informing, and oh how evermore free?
Stripe or zigzag feel all too manifest. But is scuffle?
Wasteland, adder? - or recreant, informer? Darn! I neglected shuffle!
I reckon blindworm and similarly ponderous, but plainly ought I
- state meanings so - allusions written from equations spry?
