    Luc Bat form of poetry is Vietnamese and literally means "six eight", as in the rhymic time signature; Referring to alternating lines of six and eight syllables. It will always begin with a six-syllable line and end with an eight-syllable one.

    The form has a rather complicated and yet simple rhyme scheme, in which the sixth syllable of the eight syllable line rhymes with the sixth syllable of the previous line, which in turn rhymes with the eighth syllable of the line preceding it. There is no limit to the number of lines, but the eighth syllable of the last line rhymes with the first line. :lol: -----> Rather interesting, no? Perhaps the schematic and example below will clarify...

    Example by Ryter Roethicle:

    A Luc Bat Poem

    A luc bat poem is such
    You need not say so much at all
    Simple words can enthral
    It can be simple and small or big
    An epic thingamajig
    Alter words make them fig or fit
    The poetic licence bit
    Just like that line of **** or ****
    Whatever, give it a bash
    Now my mind I must thrash and beat
    And turn these humble feet
    So first and last line meet and touch
