Cretic Meter

Cretic Meter is composed of twelve syllable lines with a rhythm made up of four amphimacer feet. That is: (` – `) (` – `) (` – `) (` – `).

dancing feet undulate only move when they meet
dancing fool will not wait cross the street hesitate
speeding car brakes lock tight does not stop screeching flight
this just might make a mess but the fool did egress

Okay, on closer examination, some of the lines don’t follow the meter, some feet are dactyls not amphimacer. And the syntax is too choppy for my taste. I wonder if it would work in Greek?
