A to Z Challenge: Repetita Iuvant and Rictameter

Repetita iuvant:

Usually said as a jocular remark to defend the speaker’s (or writer’s) choice to repeat some important piece of information to ensure reception by the audience.

Starting your first line with a two syllable word, you then consecutively increase the number of syllables per line by two. i.e. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10

Then down again, 8, 6, 4, 2 Making the final line the same two syllable word you began with.
