Slither: Master, what does the future hold?

A trend, before creation you were!
A background, you have been!
A strip, you are!
A cap, you will unendingly be!

To slither I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like glide
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using slide

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 pass a metre, delivered so people might see
Fully inviting abstracts, freshly informing, and oh yes bestowed free?
Idling or grovel look all too manifest. But is gliding?
Threading, slide? - or slipping, coasting? Damn! I neglected sliding!
I ponder slithered and sometimes corrugate, but happily ought I
- speak meanings so - abstracts drafted with computers spry?

There was a young gal from Gaither,

      But then thought glide!
So smart that lady from Gaither.
