Written to try the form of the week
He bet
the house, the car,
and all their money

She lost
her patience, her self-control,
and any respect she had for him

She got a divorce and then won the lottery.

Written using the Sevenling form for the Poet's Place group

The Poet's Place   (E)
Poets can discuss, review, request reviews, etc. of their unique form of writing.
#1937699 by Dave

A 7-line poem (two tercets and a one-liner as the final stanza) with these parameters:

Three lines that contain an element of three. This could be three connected or contrasting statements, a list of three names or details, etc. The three things can take up all three lines, or be contained anywhere in the stanza.

Three more lines that contain an element of three (can relate to stanza one directly, as a juxtaposition, or have no connection whatsoever).

Final line: a punchline, strange twist, narrative summary, or punctuation mark, of sorts.

No particular rhyme, rhythm or meter are required. Titles are also not required. If you do decide to title it, the title should be “Sevenling:” followed by the first few words in parentheses.
