Tells: Master, what will come of me?

Rungs, in every other way you were!

Servicings, you will constantly be!

To tells I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like differentiates
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using relates

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Tells

A query tells and I do write for you?
These scrambled lines don’t hide my ignorance
It seems that I can use a gig or two
I sort them quickly, making poets wince.

My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore
This early version here my scripts expose.

Oh but Levenshtein, your magic does haze
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!
It seems to me your spelling drives my daze
So here I have a canned default for thee.

As progress now allows computing lines,
It won’t be long before you see the signs!

Pi (π)
Can I give a metre, disclosed so beings might see
Fully didactic abstracts, usually informing, and oh how provided free?
Spokes or yields feel all too apparent. But is telling?
Discovers, bears? - or mentions, produces? Damn! I neglected yelling!
I reckon assembles and sometimes clarifies, but rightly ought I
- blurt concepts so - abstracts fetched with computers spry?

There was a man from Awosting,
He wanted a word for roosting.

      But settled on tells!
So smart that man from Awosting.
