Snipe: Master, what is in store for me?

An attack, you were!
A pack, you have been!
A blackcock, you are!
A dock, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term snipe
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for gripe

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Pi (π)
Can I cast a rhyme, disclosed so pupils might see
Terse teaching summaries, readily educating, and oh yes imparted free?
Rascal or saddle seem all too absolute. But is capping?
Extensive, hoist? - or tweezers, seafarer? Darn! I excluded tapping!
I wonder dignified and therefore earnestly, but rightly ought I
- speak concepts so - allusions fetched from computers spry?

There was a girl from Lake Prince,
She needed a word for mince.

So smart that gal from Lake Prince.
