One Man


One man’s wife is another man’s daughter,
One man’s knife is another man’s slaughter,
One man’s life is another man’s water.

One man's strife is another man's hotter

    This is slick. I like the shape and content both. Does this three rhyming lines have a name or type of poetry or did yoy just invent it?

      Thanks! I cannot find any particular form for it, but I guess it’s most similar to a Muzdawidj? I wasn’t following a form, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it already existed (actually I’d be surprised if it didn’t). 🙂
