W is for Wrapped Refrain

Mass of people crossing the road

Grey clouds, trenches built, river flowed

Rejecting what we’ve done to earth

Pollution, suffering and birth

Killing nature purely for profit not regal

Not thinking of the future and mass of people

Forgive us for what we have done

Hatred and war not so much fun

Search for the next generation

Different colours of the nation

A lot of important issues need to discuss

For being irresponsible please forgive us*

The Wrapped Refrain, created by Jan Turner, consists of 2 or more stanzas of 6 lines each; Meter: 8,8,8,8,12,12 and Rhyme Scheme: a,a,b,b,c,c.

Refrain rule: In each stanza the first 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) in the first line must be the last 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) at the end of the last line. This is what wraps each stanza with a repeated refrain …thus, the Wrapped Refrain.
