A *perfect* meter works, IMHO, if and only if it sounds right to the ear. That is, if it sounds as if someone might actually speak that way. Otherwise, it would merely sound contrived.
If anyone is "giving" the word "good" a beat, they are reading it wrong. You don't "give" beats because you feel like it -- syllables have beats because of the way words are pronounced and the nature of the syllables that surround them.
