Runoff: Master, am I extra?

A deficiency, thoughout history you never were!
A redundancy, you have been!
An overpopulation, you are!
An inundation, you will permanently be!

Xenia Epigram
To runoff I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like overflow
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using outflow

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Can I pass a metre, published so pupils might see
Newly charming innuendos, thereby informing, and oh yet bestowed free?
Outlet or abound seem all too absolute. But is dipping?
Overwhelm, swamp? - or spillway, submerge? Darn! I excluded tipping!
I reckon abundance and sometimes depletion, but plainly ought I
- throw meanings so - sentences written from equations spry?
