Orchid: Master, am I mauve?

A baseball, in every other way you were!
A screwball, you have been!
A testis, you are!
A nutcase, you will constantly be!

To orchid I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like baseball
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using screwball

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

Like encomiums,
they're congratulatory.
Neither nice nor neat.
Lay it on with a trowel,
To present, give or donate.

Can I make a pulse, published so crowds might see
Fully pleasant innuendos, proudly nurturing, and oh how conveyed free?
Enjoin or decree feel all too absolute. But is heading?
Determine, enact? - or proclaim, instruct? Damn! I neglected leading!
I wonder prescribe and otherwise designate, but broadly ought I
- state meanings so - innuendos written with equations spry?

There was a young girl from Ouchis,
She needed a word for orchis.
      Such as meatsicle?
      No, it's testicle!
That literate girl from Ouchis.
