April 21 - Sunday Thoughts Poetry form =Pantoum

What are the things you love? The things you hate? List them in two columns. Now, write a poem that combines something you love with something you hate.
Pantoum the pattern of line-repetition is as follows, where the lines of the first quatrain are represented by the numbers "1 2 3 4": 
       1  2  3  4          - Lines in first quatrain.
       2  5  4  6          - Lines in second quatrain.
       5  7  6  8          - Lines in third quatrain.
       7  9  8 10          - Lines in fourth quatrain.
       9  3 10  1          - Lines in fifth and final quatrain.
Ideally, the meaning of lines  1 & 3 shifts when they are repeated although the words remain exactly the same: this can be done by shifting punctuation, punning, or simply recontextualizing.


I was sick yesterday and I am still sick today so while I did publish it points wise it is a real dud. I hope whatever this is goes away soon.
