    The TYBURN poetic form consists of six lines with syllable a syllable count of 2, 2, 2, 2, 9, 9 and a rhyme scheme of aaaabb. The 1st 4 lines rhyme and are descriptive words. The last 2 lines rhyme and incorporate the words in lines 1-4 (Lines one and two are in line five, and lines three and four are in line six as syllables 5-8.)

    This form is generally used to build an image, but can become quite tedius in constructing a narrative.

    Example by Unknown Author:

    Too Serious

    Lying,
    Dying,
    Crying,
    Sighing
    Living is your lying-dying grave
    without fun, you crying, sighing knave.
