Brief Definition

A Chastushka is a type of Russian poem which is sometimes performed as a song with a high beat frequency. Although it is Russian in origin, it is frequently used throughout Ukraine. It is common for several different Chastushka poems to be put together to form one complete song which is referred to as Chastushki.

Chastushka poems are traditionally short poems that are just four lines in length. They will always rhyme and they can use one of several rhyming patterns. The most common forms of rhyme are ABAB and AABB. There are also instances of the poem having an ABCA rhyming structure.

The Chastushka poem is known for being humorous or satirical in nature. They originated as a form of folk entertainment. They can be performed by two people who are trading insults at each other. When they are performed as a song there is often a short piece of music after each verse so that people can laugh without missing the poem.

Waste Of Time

A long time he has hung on
It's about time he gets the boot
The rest would be glad to see him gone
They'll team up to say good-bye to Newt
