Orneriness: Master, can I change my nature?

A disobedience, you were!
An intransigence, you have been!
An obstinacy, you are!
A pertinacity, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term orneriness
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for contrariness

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Can I fake a metre, disclosed so beings might see
Terse teaching abstracts, plainly imparting, and oh but provided free?
Weight or heater seem all too apparent. But is ability?
Obstinacy, stand? - or obduracy, tenacity? Damn! I deserted agility!
I wonder contumacy and otherwise rebellion, but frankly ought I
- throw meanings so - abstracts written from computers spry?
