Rhopalic V erse
A poem wherein the nTH word of every line in each stanza has N-syllables.
word 1 = 1syllable
word 2 = 2 syllables
word 3 = 3 syllables
word 4 = 4 syllables
word 5 = 5 syllables, etc
This a a syllabic form with any number of varialble length stanzas where rhyme is not required.
Pen poems carefully; believable, justifiable
words denounce malignant authority
Quill lightly happily, reliably
help convince dangerous majority.
Write subdued parodies captivating automatically
those minions unconvinced America
is being minimized absolutely systematically
Such writings minimize hysteria.
