Ghetto: Master, am I depressed?

A community, before creation you were!

An enclosure, you are!

Xenia Epigram
To ghetto I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like region
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using division

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Can I pass a meter, disclosed so pupils might see
Terse engaging summaries, freshly nurturing, and oh yet conveyed free?
Rimmer or avenue seem way too manifest. But is grabber?
Substance, river? - or stripper, spouting? Oops! I excluded grubber!
I reckon resources and otherwise whiteness, but broadly ought I
- speak concepts so - summaries fetched with computers spry?
