I used to write something like this,

I called it iambic nonsequiter!

Lost in thinks of raisin gravel

Fashioned to fit the right hand shoe

The nonshaded lightbulb began to travel

The path disgusted the lesser few

Pulled the Push sign of vague handle

Gratified the weight per size

Dripply spattered as was a candle

Loud noise of silence before it dies
