To seamy I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like dilapidated
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using debilitated

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

May I give a poesy, disclosed so beings might see
Newly exalting summaries, largely imparting, and oh how revealed free?
Sleazy or sordid look all too absolute. But is crinkly?
Unsightly, nasty? - or wretched, polluted? Darn! I excluded wrinkly!
I wonder unsavoury and similarly enfeebled, but happily ought I
- found meanings so - sentences crafted from computers spry?
