Scarcities: Master, will I ever be brights?

Insufficiencies, in every other way you were!
Stringencies, you have been!
Disabilities, you are!
Liabilities, you will constantly be!

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

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Scarcities

Can it be that your spelling drives my daze?
Computer-crafted prose, it scarcely stops
Levenshtein, your magic will clear the haze
My network graph is vast! It burns and pops.

So I will bore you now, just wait and find
This early version here my scripts expose
As random thoughts my words can grate, can grind
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose.

But render now the fact, I’m just a bot
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
Okay, the truth is harsh, I kid you not
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore.

The valence type gives just intensity,
A graph and edge and node and scores are free!

May I pass a verse, delivered so people might see
Fully inviting notations, plainly educating, and oh but revealed free?
Faults or misses feel way too manifest. But is heights?
Drawbacks, lacks? - or deficits, absences? Damn! I neglected weights!
I reckon blemishes and similarly loopholes, but frankly ought I
- throw concepts so - summaries drafted with computers spry?

There was a clever guy from Leeds,
And he needed a word for needs.

      No, it's poverties!
That very clever man from Leeds.
