Zebras: Master, am I equine?

A nacre, you were!
An arbitrator, you have been!
A cheetah, you are!

Xenia Epigram
To zebras I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like horses
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using asses

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Can I make a pulse, published so people might see
Newly cheerful innuendos, bravely educating, and oh but revealed free?
Helens or riders seem all too manifest. But is paddles?
Bestrides, dusts? - or dragoons, trounces? Damn! I excluded saddles!
I wonder stallions and certainly hydrogens, but plainly ought I
- paste concepts so - summaries crafted from computers spry?

There was a young boy from Tetons,
He wanted a word for setons.
      While cleaning the pipes?
      But then thought stripes!
That literate lad from Tetons.
