A haiku is a traditional Japanese form of poetry, consisting of 17 syllables in three lines.
A senryu is a traditional Japanese form of poetry, similar to a haiku.
A rooku is a Melbourne variation invented by those people who responsible for putting up the horrible poetry in the trains.
I propose an addition to this list:
A fucyu - a traditional Australian form of poetry, consisting of 17 syllables in three lines. All of the syllables except for the last one/two/three consist of swear words, and the last part of the fucyu consists of a person's name!
Other new possibilities in verse:
The grimerick - a limerick on particularly grim subjects.
The coupling rhymlet - just like a rhyming couplet, only pornographic.
