Plainness: Master, am I homely?

A perspicuity, once upon a time you were!
A brilliancy, you have not been!
A lucidity, you are!
An insipidity, you will eternally be!

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

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Plainness

Can basic facts be easily plain for all?
These scrambled lines don’t hide my ignorance
Until my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall
I sort them quickly, making poets wince.

Plain luck, I cannot rhyme your strange entry
As random thoughts my words can grate, can grind
My passion here you see is cranking glee
So I will bore you now, just wait and find.

But oh, an algorithm plain I need
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin
This meter sings, but lacks some content speed
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin.

The truth be told, it’s plain my work’s not Zen,
Iambic verse has rules and guides my pen!

Rondelet
Plainness

Background brightness,
public accountability.
Background brightness,
and the best word for holiness.
Luminous flux intensity,
rotational deformity.
Background brightness.

Pi (π)
Can I make a metre, disclosed so beings might see
Terse pleasing sentences, forever imparting, and oh how evermore free?
Simple or purity seem way too apparent. But is blather?
Innocence, folly? - or easiness, severity? Darn! I deserted blether!
I ponder plainness and therefore austerity, but plainly ought I
- state concepts so - abstracts drafted with equations spry?

Limerick
There was a gal from Lake McGinness,
She wanted a word for plainness.
      Such as the nuisance?
      No, it's brilliance!
So smart that girl from Lake McGinness.
