Tory Meter

The ToryMeter was invented by Victoria Sutton, known as Passionspromise on Allpoetry. 
An easy form that is similar to the Rictameter with a slightly different approach. Example follows.


2 syllables (R) last line
4 syllables
6 syllables
8 syllables
10 syllables
12 syllables
10 syllables
8 syllables
6 syllables
4 syllables
2 syllables (R) first line (2/4/6/8/10/12/10/8/6/4/2)

 

Rhyme scheme can vary I have done multiple in different end rhymes.
But they must have a rhyme scheme…

Example Poem

Good Friends
Good friends
share anything
because their trust extends
beyond the boundary that will  spring
from propriety and good common sense
between casual friends. Their trust may stem from shared
experiences or things learned at expense
of innocence with feelings bared.
If that trust should fail, how
can they be now
Good friends
