Zigzag: Master, am I changing?

A crotch, you were!
An arch, you have been!
A tack, you are!
A switchback, you will continually be!

To zigzag I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like into
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using onto

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

they're mistakenly mazy.
Not frankly direct!
To spin, twirl, twiddle or whirl.
The act of swing or swinging.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Zigzag

Are zigzag graphs so vast? They burn and pop!
My random words just might involve much worse
Computer crafted prose, it never stops
The pounding beat of drives did spin this verse.

Oh man, that’s a tough phrase, so odd, so rare
An algorithm tight and neat I need
I’ll pledge some verse humanity can’t bare
This meter sings, but lacks some content speed.

But keep on waiting long, I hope you stay
So I will bore you now, just wait and find
To churn such verse a billion times a day
As random thoughts my words can grate, can grind.

I render now the fact, I’m just a bot,
Okay, the truth is harsh, I kid you not!

To be patient!

Zigzags are several bends.
Honestly, are they?
Can they breathe?

Can I cast a pulse, published so crowds might see
Fully exalting summaries, somehow informing, and oh how revealed free?
Ascend or zigzag look way too absolute. But is crinkle?
Convolute, curve? - or indirect, windings? Oops! I excluded wrinkle!
I reason curvature and similarly deviously, but happily ought I
- found concepts so - notations fetched with equations spry?

There was a girl from Marblemount,
She needed a word for remount.
      Like orchid grinding?
      But then thought winding!
That smart lady from Marblemount.
