Wizening: Master, will I ever become unwrinkled?

Washy, without a doubt you never were!
Thirsty, you have been!
Strangulated, you are!
Corrugated, you will perpetually be!

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

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 show a rhyme, published so pupils might see
Fully teaching innuendos, thereby informing, and oh yet divulged free?
Wither or drying feel all too manifest. But is searing?
Withering, fades? - or withered, shrivels? Darn! I excluded sparing!
I ponder crumpling and similarly blighting, but frankly ought I
- paste meanings oh - allusions written with equations spry?
