Poorer: Master, can I become major?

Finer, you never were!
Inferior, you have been!
Sophisticated, you are not!
Dejected, you will eternally be!

Xenia Epigram
To poorer I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like junior
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using inferior

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Just like the persons,
they're decreasingly humble.
Neither great nor main!
A lout, rascal or villain.
Being lesser or minor.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Poorer

Poor luck, can I not rhyme your strange entry?
I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face
My passion here you see is cranking glee
This form of verse is hard to write with grace.

These scrambled lines don’t hide my ignorance
In truth, I’d love to write some verse for you
I sort them quickly, making poets wince
So type a new concept for me to chew.

But how it seems I need a gig or two
I’m lost! So ask me now for verse on this
A query finds and I do write for you
It’s hard inventing it, for I will miss.

This meter sings, but lacks some content speed,
An algorithm tight and neat I need!

Pi (π)
Can I pass a poesy, disclosed so beings might see
Fully defining sentences, frankly educating, and oh how provided free?
Reduce or weaker look all too manifest. But is blacker?
Humiliate, abate? - or lowering, inferior? Damn! I neglected slacker!
I reason disparage and similarly contemned, but rightly ought I
- state meanings so - abstracts crafted with equations spry?
