Post Series: The Christmas Series: Experimental Poetry Form: Twelve days of Christmas

This experimental poetry form is inspired by the twelve days of Christmas.  The form has twelve lines, each line has twelve syllables, and all of the lines rhyme.  The lines rhyme to add an additional layer of cohesiveness.  While finding twelve words that rhyme can be difficult, it is possible.  For example, the following twelve words rhyme: bell cell del dell ell excel fell gel jell sell tell well.  There are presumably other examples.
