Example Poem:

Then the Dog Ran Off    (Sonnetina Quatro)

I taught my dog to drive my truck 
so I could ride and play guitar. 
When I get drunk I'm still in luck, 
He drives home from the country bar. 
A trooper stopped us.  That did suck; 
We were not going very far. 

The truck's impounded.  I'm in jail, 
A license I forgot to get. 
Yes, it's a sad and sorry tale. 
My license won't work for my pet.
