You can make the second line work without torturing the language. Conjugating "Escape" traditionally, you get

I escape

Thou escapest

He, she or it escapeth

So if you use real English, the second line could be written as

escapeth infinity

Proper English results in proper scansion and the prosody you want. If only more people spoke proper English. If only I spoke Perl half as well as I speak English! :-) And this post would be formatted much better if only I spoke HTML.
