Cumulating Verse

The only rule of Cumulating Verse is that each end word of the lines within a stanza rhyme in a specific way. Each rhyming word must be increased by a single consonant every time the rhyme is used. So the letter count of the rhyming words in a stanza increase. Diminishing Verse is the opposite, the letter count of the rhyming words in a stanza shrinks line by line.

before the end
comes around the bend
take these beans and blend

coffee’s a small price to spend
and it just might send
away the end
