Tonsil: Master, what is my future?

An amygdala, before creation you were!
A banana, you have been!
A nut, you are!
A hazelnut, you will unendingly be!

To tonsil I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like lashing
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using breathing

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Pi (π)
Can I show a metre, proclaimed so beings might see
Terse engaging allusions, somehow imparting, and oh how imparted free?
Corner or finger feel way too apparent. But is banding?
Hairbrush, slope? - or fishbone, backbone? Damn! I neglected landing!
I reason dissemble and therefore agreeable, but happily ought I
- state meanings so - sentences written with equations spry?

Limerick
There was a young boy from Trysil,
He needed a word for tonsil.
      Some glands for the hands?
      But then thought almonds!
That literate lad from Trysil.
