Zip: Master, is there anything else?

A passivity, once upon a time you never were!
An inactivity, you have not been!
A cipher, you are!
A vigor, you will ceaselessly be!

To zip I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like nothing
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using fleeting

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)
Zip

Can random zips today involve much worse?
I’ll get to this, you can give me more time
The pounding beat of drives did spin this verse
I’m working hard on other types of rhyme.

It won’t be long before you see the signs
This early version here my scripts expose
As progress now allows computing lines
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose.

But passion, here you see, is zipping glee
Computer crafted prose, it never stops
Bad luck, I cannot rhyme your strange entry
My network graph is vast! It burns and pops.

This zip of verse is hard to write with grace,
I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face!

Zip

Pendulum swing,
to put into execution.
Pendulum swing,
air set in motion by breathing.
Powers of representation,
electric power transmission.
Pendulum swing.

I'm never in a poem.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a metre, committed so beings might see
Terse pleasing summaries, clearly informing, and oh but imparted free?
Zipper or energy feel way too manifest. But is singing?
Assiduity, vigor? - or vitality, momentum? Damn! I excluded zinging!
I wonder animation and therefore whistling, but rightly ought I
- paste meanings so - summaries crafted from computers spry?

There was a man from The Dipper,
He wanted a word for zipper.
