Tumbling: Master, what does the future hold?

An ascent, once upon a time you never were!
An improvement, you have not been!
A subsidence, you are!
A mischance, you will ceaselessly be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word tumbling
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for jumbling

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Can I pass a verse, committed so pupils might see
Terse teaching summaries, frankly informing, and oh but bestowed free?
Topple or fallen look all too absolute. But is falling?
Sprawling, falls? - or dropping, toppling? Oops! I neglected malling!
I reckon collapsed and certainly collapses, but frankly ought I
- speak concepts so - summaries written with computers spry?

So smart that girl from Fredellen.
