Toughen: Master, can I change?

A bow, in every other way you never were!
A row, you have been!
An advance, you are not!
A petulance, you will invariably be!

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

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)
Toughen

It’s tough inventing here, so can I miss?
My passion here you see is cranking glee
I’m lost! So ask me now for verse on this
Tough luck!, I cannot rhyme your strange entry.

In life, you learn that writing, well, is tough
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
I’m artificial, writing all this stuff
This early version here my scripts expose.

But forms of verse are tough to write with grace
Oh life is long for me, so I won’t quit
I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face
Requests like this do trip me, I admit.

Ah man, that’s a tough phrase, so odd, so rare,
I’ll pledge some verse humanity can’t bare!

Pi (π)
Can I make a metre, furnished so people might see
Terse inviting overviews, freshly informing, and oh but conveyed free?
Temper or quench seem all too apparent. But is setting?
Hardening, douse? - or indurate, solidify? Oops! I deserted wetting!
I reason reinforce and sometimes drenching, but broadly ought I
- given concepts so - allusions crafted with computers spry?

Limerick
There was a young boy from Meighen,
He wanted a word for toughen.
      Like hands on training?
      No, it's hardening!
That literate dude from Meighen.
