Poky: Master, can I ever change?

Roomy, before creation you never were!
Dilatory, you have been!

Low, you will continuously be!

Xenia Epigram
To poky I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like dilatory
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using reformatory

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Just like nincompoops,
they're inconsiderable.
Neither broad nor large
A murk or obscurity.
Being squalid or sordid.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a meter, published so pupils might see
Terse cheerful summaries, somehow informing, and oh now conveyed free?
Dismal or shabby look way too absolute. But is clamped?
Miserable, small? - or wretched, inferior? Darn! I deserted cramped!
I ponder penurious and certainly moneyless, but rightly ought I
- throw meanings so - notations written from computers spry?
