Vortex: Master, am I cattish?

A convolution, you were!
A regurgitation, you have been!
A whirlpool, you are!
A pool, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To vortex I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like whirl
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using swirl

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

May I pass a verse, furnished so crowds might see
Newly pleasant innuendos, faintly informing, and oh but imparted free?
Burble or welter look way too apparent. But is catfish?
Whirlpool, swirl? - or twisting, fracture? Oops! I neglected cattish!
I reckon maelstrom and certainly whirlwind, but happily ought I
- blurt meanings so - summaries crafted with computers spry?

There was a young girl from Hartex,
She wanted a word for vortex.
      She thought of a tool,
      But then thought whirlpool!
So smart that woman from Hartex.
