Oxlylet

Invented by Bhaskar Datta
Within a Triolet, the 1st, 4th, and  7th lines
repeat, and the 2nd and 8th lines do as well.
The rhyme scheme is simple:  ABaAabAB, capital
letters representing the repeated lines.
Make writing a Triolet more challenging!
Make each line 8 syllables in length (4 metrical feet),
written in iambic tetrameter (the more common way),
or try it in pentameter (English version)
NOW that you have done that, add an oxymoron to each line and you have an OXYLET
Example Poem
Left Aint Right
Now we will try to right a wrong
for we don’t find the left is right.
We are aroused, but passive throng.
Now we will try to right a wrong
We’ll loudly sing our quiet song
and wage this year our peaceful fight.
Now we will try to right a wrong
for we don’t find the left is right.
