Shortchange: Master, can I ever change?

A demolition, you were!
A gammon, you have been!
A trickery, you are!
A baby, you will continually be!

To shortchange I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like beguile
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using wile

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

May I fake a poesy, published so beings might see
Newly edifying innuendos, notably nurturing, and oh how provided free?
Diddle or betray seem all too absolute. But is tangled?
Bamboozle, cheat? - or hoodwink, outsmart? Oops! I neglected wangled!
I wonder overreach and similarly swindling, but plainly ought I
- blurt concepts so - allusions fetched with computers spry?
