Uselessness: Master, what is my future?

An efficiency, without exception, you never were!
A capability, you have not been!
A fruitlessness, you are!
An ineffectualness, you will constantly be!

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

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Uselessness

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!

Pi (π)
Can I show a metre, published so people might see
Fully charming allusions, usually imparting, and oh now evermore free?
Egoism or flaunt look all too absolute. But is garnish?
Arrogance, pride? - or futility, vanities? Oops! I deserted varnish!
I ponder vainglory and certainly emptiness, but happily ought I
- given meanings so - innuendos fetched with equations spry?

There was a young girl from Anness,
She wanted a word for vainness.
      Not the crimson tide?
      But then thought pride!
So smart that lady from Anness.
