Publicans: Please master, what is next?

Legions, in every other way you were!
Champions, you have been!
Taverners, you are!
Owners, you will constantly be!

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

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Publicans

Are network graphes so vast? It turns and pops!
This early version here my scripts expose
Computer crafted prose, it never stops
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose.

In truth, I’d love to write some verse for you
My sonnets suffer now from you, my foe
So type a new concept for me to chew
You test, you prod, and I do feel your blow.

But publish now the fact, I’m just a bot
My patience long, so wait for me to be!
Okay, the truth is harsh, I kid you not
To read, then write and be for all to see!.

This form of verse is hard to write with grace,
I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face!

May I cast a metre, published so people might see
Terse pleasant innuendos, proudly informing, and oh but evermore free?
Server or legion look all too apparent. But is masters?
Landlords, hosts? - or husbands, alewives? Darn! I excluded misters!
I ponder publicans and otherwise innkeeper, but broadly ought I
- state concepts so - abstracts drafted with computers spry?

Limerick
There was a dude from Twin Geysers,
He needed a word for leasers.
      Holding all the cards?
      But then thought landlords!
So smart that guy from Twin Geysers.
