After a tedious internet search, I cannot see any definitive amount of lines required for the Than-Bauk Poem.
xxxa xxax xaxb xxbx xbxc xxcx xcxd, etc.
where “x” is the syllable count, “a” through “d…. etc.” is the rhyme scheme Example by Jacquii Cooke:
where the rain falls the wind calls for hail balls and rest and the zest of lights’ best lit way. some kind slave runs away from deep chains

Since Bob was mute on the subject of poem length, I will assume it can be any number of odd-lines greater than three.
