All bets are off when it comes to free verse poetry.
A free verse poem is whatever the poet wants it to be.
This form of free verse uses metaphor to describe the lust for sexual conquest.
A rhymed poem concluding in free verse can make its point as forcefully as a closing couplet.
Instead, free verse poetry may rhyme or may not rhyme (or may mix rhyming and not rhyming lines), it may be very long or very short, and it doesn't count syllables.
