Tortured: Master, can I change?

A temper, before all peoples you never were!
A martyr, you have been!
A distortion, you are!
A vivisection, you will persistently be!

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

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

they're discombobulated.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Tortured

Do poets die with tortures left in space?
This form of verse is hard to write with grace
You might ask human souls should I replace
I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face.

My network graph is vast! It burns and pops
Bad luck, I cannot rhyme your strange entry
Computer crafted prose, it never stops
My passion here you see is cranking glee.

But how it seems I need a gig or two
For what you type in my website as shown
A query finds and I do write for you
A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown.

This meter sings, but lacks some content speed,
An algorithm tight and neat I need!

Pi (π)
Can I cast a verse, proclaimed so people might see
Terse pleasing sentences, plainly nurturing, and oh but provided free?
Abused or warped seem all too apparent. But is hounded?
Tormented, vexed? - or martyred, torments? Darn! I deserted wounded!
I reason torturing and otherwise anguished, but broadly ought I
- found concepts so - allusions fetched with computers spry?

There was a clever gal from Meiss,
And she needed a word for gneiss.

      But then thought torment!
That literate lady from Meiss.
