“I was very briefly at Allpoetry, but am mainly associated with writing.com. I invented this form for a contest where we were asked to devise a form based upon our occupation. As a former biology teacher, the Punnett sort of invented itself. The poems themselves should be centered on the page.”
(Punnett squares are used in Biology to assess the ratio of possible genotypic outcomes when crossing traits among a species.)
The Punnett – This form is based on the ratios in a Punnett Square.
The poem must be about a biological topic, with the first line being a
part of or offspring of the last line.
The form has nine lines, with a word count of 1/2/1/2/4/2/1/2/1.
There is no rhyming structure.
