Ticking: Master, what is my future?

An anteriority, before creation you were!
A precocity, you have been!
A celerity, you are!
A recency, you will unendingly be!

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

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)
Ticking

Can I spew verse a billion ticks a day?
A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown
I keep all waiting long, I hope you stay
For what you type in my website as shown.

I’ll get to this, you can give me more time
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
I’m working hard on other types of rhyme
This early version here my scripts expose.

But pounding beats of drives do spin this verse
Oh life is long for me, so I won’t quit
My random words just might involve much worse
Requests like this do trip me, I admit.

My network graph is vast! It burns and pops,
Computer crafted prose, it never stops!

Can I show a verse, delivered so people might see
Fully teaching innuendos, briefly educating, and oh but divulged free?
Fading or acting look all too manifest. But is massing?
Providing, ticks? - or covering, elapsing? Damn! I neglected passing!
I reckon migrating and therefore happening, but frankly ought I
- given concepts so - summaries fetched with computers spry?

There was a gal from Eagles Beak,
And she wanted a word for teak.
      Such as knuckle fucking?
      But then thought ticking!
That smart woman from Eagles Beak.
