    Epistrophe is the repetition of a word or phrase throughout the end of each sentence or line, usually for rhetoric or poetic effect.

    -- Epistrophe --

    Wanted a love life to be wonderful, she thought
    Verbosities and verisimilitudes, she thought
    Dillydally, dillydally, where's Sally? She thought
    Sally's non-existent, just a zephyr, she thought

    Setting aside, baking for a new love, she shivered
    Shyness embraces, and blushes, she quivered
    Where will their marriage be? Alongside the river?
    "Wash your eyes," said Sally, so much livelier

    Shilly-shally, shilly-shally, tweeted the canary
    Moving loosely, moving loosely, she's so wary
    Just being a horse to a carousel, give a dowry
    "Never love him," Sally and the canary proceeds

    "Don't fool yourself," Sally exuberantly replied
    Tweeting is the canary, as it blatantly decried
    "Rosie, he's a puppeteer, he'll control you as complied"
    "Wish you'd open more eyes," said Sally with goodbyes

    And the puppeteer man loved her, as she cried
    And dumping her as crumpled paper, she cried
    If she didn't fall for him, she'll be fine, she cried
    Is she listened to their heeds, she'll be fine, she cried

    Kinda cliché, an epistrophe, losing some taste
    Taste it for the sixth time, it's almost like waste
    Dillydally, dillydally, she doesn't want a love life
    Shilly-shally, shilly-shally, she went through a strife

    Poem no. 112

    Just to explain (Read the poem first ��):

    Rosie is the girl who wanted for a love life, but later regretted it when she was manipulated and cheated along. She did not listen to the heeds of Sally.

    Sally is an imaginary friend who warned Rosie about the guy who apparently loves and dumps women as toys, but Rosie did not listen sooner.

    The epistrophe, said in the title, is more of a metaphor, thinking and thinking, doing and doing the same thing, until you're bored or was learned a lesson with.
