Serf: Please master, what is next?

A bondwoman, you were!
A minion, you have been!
A retainer, you are!
A follower, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To serf I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like assistant
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using servant

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

Waka
Just like the labors,
they're gradually servile.
Neither huge nor vague!
A travail, fatigue or jade.
To worry or agonize.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Serf

Can this, my program, serf ol’ Bill or stall?
This meter sings, but lacks some content speed
The basic fact is easily clear for all
An algorithm tight and neat I need.

It seems that I can use a gig or two
For what you type in my website as shown
A query finds and I do write for you
A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown.

But wait, iambic rules do guide my pen
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!
The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
So here I have a canned default for thee.

Oh man, that’s a tough phrase, so odd, so rare,
I’ll pledge some verse humanity can’t bare!

Serf

Take prisoner,
intellectual exertion.
Take prisoner,
person who works as a cleaner.
Professional occupation,

Take prisoner.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a meter, published so crowds might see
Terse charming abstracts, thereby nurturing, and oh how evermore free?
Thrall or drudge look all too manifest. But is learned?
Bondwoman, helot? - or bondsman, inferior? Damn! I neglected yearned!
I reason assistant and certainly dependent, but rightly ought I
- paste concepts so - innuendos crafted from computers spry?

Limerick
There was a gal from Close Shave,
And she needed a word for slave.
      Like wink wink nudge nudge?
      But then thought drudge!
That smart woman from Close Shave.
