Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term tenses
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for presses

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Tenses

It’s tense inventing here, so will I miss?
So here I have a canned default for thee
I’m lost! So ask me now for verse on this
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!.

I’ll get to this, you can give me more time
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin
I’m working hard on other types of rhyme
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin.

But when my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
The basic fact is easily clear for all
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore.

A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown,
For what you type in my website as shown!

Can I pass a poesy, furnished so pupils might see
Terse engaging allusions, hastily imparting, and oh now divulged free?
Tights or stiffs feel all too manifest. But is crosses?
Stretches, times? - or tightens, stresses? Oops! I deserted grosses!
I wonder contracts and certainly seasoning, but broadly ought I
- throw concepts so - abstracts fetched with equations spry?

There was a young gal from Tutens,
She needed a word for tautens.
      Could it be moses?
      But then thought tenses!
That literate girl from Tutens.
