Variety: Master, can I change?

A multifariousness, thoughout history you were!
A stress, you have been!
An uniformity, you are not!
A diversity, you will ceaselessly be!

To variety I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like variance
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using difference

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Variety

What phrase, what word, what blurb, am I now thrown?
Oh life is long for me, so I won’t quit
For what you type in my website as shown
Requests like this do trip me, I admit.

I pass my life to make more time to write
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
In finding just the verse for your delight
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore.

But vary now the fact, I’m just a bot
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
Okay, the truth is harsh, I kid you not
This early version here my scripts expose.

You can’t just stop me now, I ask a break,
Oh please, dear soul, I ask some verse to make!

May I make a poesy, proclaimed so crowds might see
Terse defining summaries, broadly imparting, and oh but evermore free?
Strain or change look way too absolute. But is rapping?
Diversity, breed? - or variance, category? Damn! I deserted tapping!
I reason variation and similarly multitude, but happily ought I
- state concepts so - sentences drafted with equations spry?

Limerick
There was a girl from Old Venus,
She wanted a word for genus.
      Such as bump and grind?
      But settled on kind!
So smart that gal from Old Venus.
