Sample poem:

Appeal for Eclipse

Enough concerning the rattling moon.
Bulimic complain, 4 suits
of outfits, all that cellulite
and she nonetheless prances,
still attempts
to illuminate the sky
when he wishes merely to be dark,
to be Johnny funds and strum
the educate experience correct out of her.

Enough from the poets,
the artists, the astronomers.
Quit coveting her at the back of his back.
She must study the methods
of a docile lady,
to be considered askew
from inside of a cardboard box,
her trashy peep exhibit ass
puppeted from the earth,
strung up in the back of the sun
curtained via this ring of fire.
