Sloughs: Master, tell my future?

Squealers, before creation you were!
Fillers, you have been!
Rotters, you are!
Glitters, you will unendingly be!

Xenia Epigram
To sloughs 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 cast a poesy, published so crowds might see
Fully cheerful overviews, crudely nurturing, and oh yes evermore free?
Swamps or crusts seem way too manifest. But is ditches?
Quagmires, mires? - or wetlands, cappings? Damn! I excluded hitches!
I wonder jettisons and otherwise dismisses, but broadly ought I
- blurt concepts so - allusions drafted with equations spry?

There was a clever guy from Maucks,
And he needed a word for mucks.

      But then thought mires!
