Teetotalism: Master, what is my future?

An abstemiousness, you were!
A sedateness, you have been!
A chastity, you are!
A gravity, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word teetotalism
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for asceticism

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Pi (π)
Can I give a rhyme, published so crowds might see
Fully pleasant notations, vaguely informing, and oh yes revealed free?
Flinch or recoil look all too apparent. But is redress?
Avoidance, parry? - or sobriety, chastity? Darn! I deserted regress!
I ponder restraint and otherwise recoiling, but plainly ought I
- paste meanings so - allusions drafted with equations spry?
