Yoda
Pusillanimous: Master, can I become fierce?

Cowardly, before time you were!
Brassy, you have not been!
Adventurous, you are not!
Timorous, you will always be!

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

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

Can I show a rhyme, published so beings might see
Newly charming innuendos, faintly educating, and oh how divulged free?
Coward or craven seem all too manifest. But is elastic?
Dastardly, timid? - or recreant, yellowly? Oops! I neglected plastic!
I reckon heartless and certainly horseless, but broadly ought I
- paste concepts so - allusions crafted with equations spry?
