Snippy: Master, am I rigid?

Affable, without exception, you never were!
Graceful, you have not been!
Discourteous, you are!
Raucous, you will constantly be!

To snippy I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like bluff
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using gruff

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

they're imperfectly sudden.
Neither suave nor mild!
A point, spike, needle or spire.
To tear off or asunder.

Can I pass a pulse, furnished so crowds might see
Fully teaching summaries, eagerly informing, and oh how imparted free?
Abrupt or coarse feel way too apparent. But is coarser?
Truculent, rough? - or churlish, impolite? Darn! I neglected hoarser!
I wonder irascible and certainly surprised, but happily ought I
- paste concepts so - abstracts drafted from equations spry?

There was a clever lad from Burt,
And he needed a word for curt.

That very clever dude from Burt.
