Gridlock: Master, what is my future?

An interruption, before time you were!
A promotion, you have not been!
A furtherance, you are not!
An encumbrance, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word gridlock
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for deadlock

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Can I pass a verse, disclosed so crowds might see
Newly teaching overviews, usually informing, and oh yet bestowed free?
Holdup or strait seem all too manifest. But is billing?
Hindrance, block? - or blockage, stoppage? Oops! I deserted filling!
I reckon embarrass and certainly interfere, but happily ought I
- throw meanings so - sentences written with equations spry?
