Unnecessary, you will eternally be!

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

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)
Useless

Can useless words today involve much worse?
So here I have a canned default for thee
The pounding beat of drives did spin this verse
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!.

Computer crafted prose, it never stops
Of course I am obnoxious I must say
My network graph is vast! It burns and pops
My thanks to you to play with me today.

But no! Don't ask me now for verse on this
I’ll get to this, you can give me more time
It’s hard inventing it, for I will miss
I’m working hard on other types of rhyme.

As useless thoughts my words can grate, can grind,
So I will bore you now, just wait and find!

High and mighty,
negative justification.
High and mighty,
to put on the high-and-mighty.
The name of a constellation,
desirous of copulation.
High and mighty.

Pi (π)
Can I show a metre, published so pupils might see
Fully didactic innuendos, thereby imparting, and oh now revealed free?
Futile or hollow feel all too manifest. But is lightly?
Conceited, empty? - or arrogant, abortive? Damn! I deserted sightly!
I ponder frivolous and certainly fruitless, but frankly ought I
- state concepts so - summaries fetched with equations spry?

There was a boy from Fort Saint Vrain,
And he wanted a word for vain.
