Pliant: Master, am I flexible?

Flexible, thoughout history you were!

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

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

Just like the reals,
they're spiritlessly supple.
Neither strict nor grim!
The new grass budding in spring,
To plasticize or soften.

Pi (π)
Can I fake a metre, published so pupils might see
Newly exalting notations, proudly informing, and oh how provided free?
Supple or docile seem all too absolute. But is elastic?
Compliant, lithe? - or flexible, yielding? Oops! I excluded plastic!
I reckon tractable and therefore kneadable, but rightly ought I
- throw concepts so - summaries drafted with equations spry?

There was a young girl from Campsey,
She wanted a word for limpsey.

So smart that lady from Campsey.
