Tattoo: Master, what is in store for me?

A decoration, you were!
An incision, you have been!
A pony, you are!
An annuity, you will continually be!

To tattoo I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like engraving
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using carving

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 cast a rhyme, published so pupils might see
Newly defining summaries, somehow educating, and oh but conveyed free?
Refuge or recess feel all too manifest. But is blatter?
Tattooing, haven? - or incision, retreats? Damn! I deserted clatter!
I reckon cubbyhole and therefore engraving, but broadly ought I
- throw concepts so - allusions fetched with equations spry?

There was a young girl from Wykoff,
She wanted a word for backoff.
      Like Peter The Great?
      But then thought retreat!
That literate gal from Wykoff.
