The Rondelet is a French form consisting of a single septet with two rhymes and one refrain: AbAabbA. The capital letters are the refrains, or repeats. The refrain is written in tetra-syllabic or dimeter and the other lines are twice as long – octasyllabic or tetrameter.
Has been done and cannot be undone
Has made me carry this heavy schlepp
I guess it’s late to ask for a bargain
I give up, I know when I’m beaten
