Example Poem

Stuck?              (Harrisham Rhyme)

Deoppilate exsuflicate concerns.
Enter some eximous and friendly verse 
removing problem words that meter spurns.
Get stuck during day?  Then try the reverse. 
Try to dinurate 'til the muse returns.
Yet a geck? Oh what the heck?  I've done worse.
