Tail rhyme Definition
( rime couée ) This is a French form consisting of two rhymes. First there is a rhyming couplet of normally of eight syllables then a third and shorter line [4 or 5 syllables ]. There is another couplet that rhymes with the first one and the sixth, shorter line that rhymes with the third line. This gives us a suggested pattern : aabccb

a dark exanple:

I could kill you by overdose
But then you’d become comatose
What’s death without fear?

Better to do it very slow
A little poison in your Coke
Watch you disappear


First Prize, Glory
