My example

Captive (Form: Rick’s 32)

Disregard
all of the rules
consider
only your own desires.
Pity those silly fools
anguishing
in church classes
and in schools.

Methamphet 
produces highs,
contentment’s
almost guaranteed. You’ll
feel that you’re a winner.
You’ll lose teeth,
and yes indeed,
be thinner.

No one else
can pull your strings.
Your lover’s
perfect; he enables
until he see the cost.
If he balks
he knows certain,
your love’s lost.
