Quagmire: Master, can I become due?

A mess, before time you were!
A goodness, you have not been!
An efficacy, you are not!
An intricacy, you will always be!

To quagmire I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like marshland
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using swampland

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

Can I pass a verse, furnished so pupils might see
Newly pleasant innuendos, hastily imparting, and oh but imparted free?
Morass or slough seem all too manifest. But is banding?
Swampland, swamp? - or quandary, nuisance? Oops! I excluded binding!
I reason marshland and similarly quicksand, but happily ought I
- blurt meanings so - notations crafted with computers spry?
