T&A and T.S. Eliot

The Maxim magnate Felix Dennis is your prototypical eccentric rich guy, and now he's quite the quillsman.
In a picaresque career, Mr. Dennis has played drums for Eric Clapton, gone to jail for publishing Oz, a crudely satirical magazine, and written a biography of Bruce Lee. In his newest chapter, the British multimillionaire is on a crusade to challenge the obscurity of modern poetry, by reclaiming old-fashioned values of rhyme and meter.

Is there a way of structuring "8 Ways to Get Her Panties Off Her Body and Around Your Head" or "10 Rules Every Guy Must Know" to a delightful iambic pentameter? The former editor of Maxim would probably scoff.
