This form was created by Alberto Jose Alvarez Gonzalez aka MystiqueWizzard
It is a mixture of Acrostic, Sonetillo and English Sonnet as it would end with rhyming couplet.
Here´s the twist:
8 syllables : Stanzas 1 -3
7 syllables :Stanza 2 and couplet
Rhyming Scheme is: abba bccb cddc ee, (abbabccbcddcee)
The closing couplet must conclude what’s stated in the first two stanzas and
the third stanza will be a little change in the direction of the statement( light volta).
You must choose a theme that holds 14 letters so you can make it acrostic.
The theme MUST be a satire or hold an obvious satirical tonality.
America, Obama said,
Needs fundamental change– and hope.
That he, a dream black, clean as soap,
Implied would be so free of dread.
Can’t ‘member him saying “Nope,
All thru creating, so much
Prosperity– losing touch
Indeed with the poor man’s need.”
There’s green that needs the Fed’s soft touch.
All businesses need our control
Lest they be soon on public dole.
Imagine! We can be your crutch.
So yep, I do have small change.
That’s one thing he did arrange.
