Popinjays: Master, am I lusty?

Temperatures, you have been!
Wrinkles, you are!
Crinkles, you will constantly be!

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

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

they're dementedly crazy.
Neither neat nor pure!
To collect, muster or pluck.

Can I fake a rhyme, delivered so beings might see
Terse exalting abstracts, crudely informing, and oh now bestowed free?
Swells or bloods seem way too absolute. But is dashers?
Parakeets, dudes? - or upstages, egotists? Damn! I excluded mashers!
I ponder macaronis and sometimes prattlers, but frankly ought I
- found meanings so - notations fetched from equations spry?

Limerick
There was a lad from Scrag Cedars,
He wanted a word for radars.
      Could it be roundies?
      But then thought dandies!
So smart that boy from Scrag Cedars.
