Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word runoffs
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for run-offs

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

Terse didactic sentences, broadly informing, and oh how bestowed free?
Remits or wrecks feel way too manifest. But is burrows?
Spillover, sinks? - or painters, outflows? Darn! I excluded furrows!
I reason undertows and otherwise effusions, but frankly ought I
- throw concepts so - summaries fetched from equations spry?
