Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term ponderous
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for onerous

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

they're exceedingly hefty.
Neither mild nor cheap!

Having much body or strength.

Can I lend a pulse, published so crowds might see
Terse defining abstracts, happily nurturing, and oh but provided free?
Clumsy or stodgy look all too absolute. But is tearing?
Maladroit, heavy? - or unwieldy, impolite? Damn! I excluded wearing!
I reckon unskilful and certainly impolitic, but broadly ought I
- throw meanings so - allusions written from equations spry?
