APR 27, bi-lyrical limerick: dual-rhyme schemes
Despite the message of the verse, the author has taken pains to construct a slate of dual rhyme scheme, or bi-lyrical limericks, including the above instance; the rhyme scheme can be characterized as:
line 1: C...A
line 2: C...A
line 3: D...B
line 4: D...B
line 5: C...A.
I'm addicted to crafting verse terse,
Though constricted by constructs perverse.
To use dual-scheme rhymes
Can confuse me at times;
But, inflicted on readers? That's worse!
In the above verse, the additional C- and D-pattern rhymes are distinguished using green font. The scansion (pattern of beats), usually involves stressing the third syllable in each line (as indicated by underlining). In this instance, this pattern is broken in the third line of the verse.
