Turnpikes: Master, am I obstructive?

Impediments, you were!
Embarrassments, you have been!
Discouragements, you are!

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

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, proclaimed so pupils might see
Fully pleasant overviews, somehow informing, and oh but bestowed free?
Hedges or baulks look way too manifest. But is ditches?
Stoppages, snags? - or fencings, railings? Oops! I excluded hitches!
I reason drawbacks and therefore holdbacks, but rightly ought I
- speak concepts so - allusions crafted from computers spry?

There was a young guy from Oates,
He wanted a word for gates.
      Some jelly on springs?
      No, it's openings!
That literate lad from Oates.
