April 16th, 2013 Poetry form = Tetractys

If you could invent a machine that could help you with one aspect of spring cleaning, what would it do?
Tetractys, a poetic form consisting of at least 5 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 syllables (total of 20). Tetractys can be written with more than one verse, but must follow suit with an inverted syllable count. Tetractys can also be reversed and written 10, 4, 3, 2, 1. Double Tetractys maybe written as: 1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 10, 4, 3, 2, 1, and a Triple Tetractys as: 1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 10, 4, 3, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 10.

Dust
Vacuum
Scrub the walls
Shake out the rugs
All in one handy, dandy wee machine
