Terrapin: Master, what is in store for me?

A terrapin, before creation you were!
A venison, you have been!
A slider, you are!
A gopher, you will unendingly be!

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

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

Pi (π)
Can I give a verse, committed so people might see
Newly defining abstracts, merrily informing, and oh but divulged free?
Fillip or branch seem all too manifest. But is bracing?
Stimulant, drive? - or spurring, fastener? Oops! I deserted tracing!
I ponder instigate and therefore pitchfork, but rightly ought I
- given concepts so - innuendos written with equations spry?
