April 15th, 2013 Poetry form = Rictameter

It's time for spring cleaning: tell us which room you're tackling first.
Rictameter is a nine line poetry form. The 1st and last lines are the same with the syllable count as follows:
•line 1 - 2 syllables - same as line 9
•line 2 - 4 syllables
•line 3 - 6 syllables
•line 4 - 8 syllables
•line 5 - 10 syllable
•line 6 - 8 syllables
•line 7 - 6 syllables
•line 8 - 4 syllables
•line 9 - 2 syllables - same as line 1

kitchen
bitchen kitchen
dirtiest place in the house
I love my kitchen but I hate to clean it
center of all that is good
smelling divine
kitchen

Ok so it's a bit off the cuff and the syllable count will have to be fixed in one or two of the lines but it answers the prompt and it's in the basic form.
