Symbol: Master, what will come of me?

An insignia, you were!

A personality, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To symbol I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like figure
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using picture

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Symbol

Is this a new symbol for me to chew?
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!
In truth, I’d love to write some verse for you
So here I have a canned default for thee.

In life, we learn that writing, well, is tough
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
I’m artificial, writing all this stuff
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore.

But wait, iambic rules do guide my pen
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
This early version here my scripts expose.

It seems to me your spelling drives my daze,
Levenshtein, your magic will clear the haze!

Pi (π)
Can I show a meter, proclaimed so people might see
Terse didactic overviews, visibly imparting, and oh but divulged free?
Emblem or signal feel all too apparent. But is fitness?
Character, token? - or insignia, evidence? Darn! I neglected witness!
I reckon trademark and sometimes symbolize, but rightly ought I
- given concepts so - notations written with equations spry?

Limerick
There was a dude from Nehalem,
He wanted a word for emblem.
      Perhaps it is vadge?
      But then thought badge!
So smart that dude from Nehalem.
