Ornery: Master, do I have a bright future?

Malicious, before this poem you were!
Gracious, you have not been!
Bitchy, you are!
Snaky, you will unendingly be!

To ornery I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like obnoxious
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using cantankerous

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

Just like the nasties,
they're untruthfully spiteful.
Neither suave nor cute!
A deuce, devil or backstay.
Being roguish or naughty.

Can I pass a rhyme, committed so people might see
Fully charming sentences, visibly nurturing, and oh but evermore free?
Wicked or bitchy look way too apparent. But is haughty?
Malicious, nasty? - or perverse, spiteful? Darn! I neglected naughty!
I wonder miserable and therefore obstinate, but rightly ought I
- state concepts so - abstracts written with equations spry?
