Tone: Master will the world adapt to me?

A disposition, thoughout history you were!
An intonation, you have been!
A flaccidity, you are not!
A rotundity, you will ceaselessly be!

Xenia Epigram
To tone I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like character
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using specter

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

Like etceteras,
they're unexceptionable.
Rarely ever weak.
The air bladder of a fish.
A tinkle, jingle or clink.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Tone

Iambic verse has tones and guides my pen?
Bad luck, I cannot rhyme your strange entry
The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
My passion here you see is cranking glee.

To write some lines for you, my discs do spin
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore.

But graphes and nodes and lines and scores are free
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
The valence type gives just intensity
This early version here my scripts expose.

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

Can I cast a verse, proclaimed so pupils might see
Terse teaching abstracts, however educating, and oh how revealed free?
Accent or timbre feel way too absolute. But is ranging?
Harmonize, sound? - or tincture, tonality? Darn! I deserted ringing!
I wonder character and sometimes undertone, but frankly ought I
- throw concepts so - sentences drafted with equations spry?

There was a man from Calleaway,
He needed a word for seaway.

      But settled on sound!
So smart that lad from Calleaway.
