Pirouette

To ten lines limited
On each six syllables
They do not have to rhyme
The theme is anything
With a clear turning point

With a clear turning point
The work may entertain
Or may elucidate
Some message meaningful
To those who read the words

Scansion:
Pirouette — a 10-line poem (decastich) with a turning point halfway through
Syllabic structure: 6 syllables in every line
Lines 5 and 6 are the same; line 6 is the pivotal point of the poem.
Rhyme is optional.
This one has no rhyme. Well, technically, lines 5-6 rhyme, but they are identical, so I would still call this free verse.
