Ostentation: Master, am I show-off?

An affectation, before this poem you were!
A condescension, you have not been!
A pomposity, you are!
A vanity, you will unendingly be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word ostentation
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for presentation

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Can I show a meter, committed so pupils might see
Newly pleasant sentences, thereby nurturing, and oh but provided free?
Expose or evince seem all too manifest. But is pointed?
Designate, offer? - or announce, disclose? Damn! I excluded printed!
I wonder establish and therefore broadcast, but happily ought I
- given meanings so - allusions written with equations spry?
