Puttering: Master, was I ever trouble-free?

Effusive, without exception, you never were!
Communicative, you have not been!
Piddling, you are!
Galling, you will constantly be!

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

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

Just like the loiters,
they're belatedly chronic.
Neither strict nor neat!
Being slow, dull or bovine.
To hesitate or dawdle.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Puttering

Can random words today involve much worse?
The valence type gives just intensity
The pounding beat of drives did spin this verse
A graph and edge and node and scores are free.

Of course I am obnoxious I must say
The basic fact is easily clear for all
My thanks to you to play with me today
Until my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall.

But coding puts it forth and makes you snore
It seems to me your spelling drives my daze
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore
Levenshtein, your magic will clear the haze.

My network graph is vast! It burns and pops,
Computer crafted prose, it never stops!

Bandage dressing,
deviation intensity.
Bandage dressing,
jokes with a double meaning.
Feeling of solidarity,
period to maturity.
Bandage dressing.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a metre, published so people might see
Terse pleasant abstracts, freshly informing, and oh yet evermore free?
Poking or moving feel way too manifest. But is droning?
Pottering, mooch? - or clubbing, fiddling? Oops! I deserted ironing!
I ponder tinkering and therefore lingering, but frankly ought I
- given meanings so - notations drafted from computers spry?

Limerick
There was a gal from Wengerlawn,
She wanted a word for long-drawn.
      Such as zoinkering?
      No, it's lingering!
So smart that gal from Wengerlawn.
