Tyburn

sheeny
shiny
ugly
surly
to mimic the sheeny, shiny stars
abandon the ugly, surly scars

Last few words: 
A Tyburn is a six line poem consisting of 2-2-2-2-9-9 syllables. The first four lines rhyme and are all descriptive words. The last two lines rhyme and incorporate the first four lines as the 5th through 8th syllables in each of these lines.

Thank you for the introduction to another form of poetry, me having written about the Tyburn Tree earlier should have been aware of this form lol.
I have added it to the O-Z of poetry forms, but here is the part for your poem which was written perfectly as usual:-
A Tyburn Poem is a six line poetic form where the first four lines consist of just a single two syllabled word each that all rhyme. The last two lines are nine syllables where the fifth to eighth syllables are the words from the first four lines.

for the add. However reading line five, I think something is missed there. There should be nine syllables there, where it only has five cra-shing- cla-shing-sea

I do have a problem with your rhyming words - to me they are not really pure rhyme - the 'y' ending doesn't make up for the 'e' 'i' and 'u' vowels ( as even the 'u' sounds are different

But lol - that of course is just me wanting perfection - OCD gets me at times

Still love the write and the use of form

Of course. I agree with you about the rhymes. It was all for fun, out of the sonnet restrictions LOL
Thank you for the kind visit dear.
