Anadiplosis

When you start a line with the same word or words that you ended the previous, that’s anadiplosis.

Anadiplosis is what?
Anadiplosis is when you can’t get enough of certain phrases
Certain phrases you repeat until everyone gets the point
The point is repetition, producing an effect that truly amazes
Amazes anyone and everyone and leaves them feeling moist
Moist is perhaps the wrong word but it’s close to what I’m thinking
I’m thinking how to lift your writing when it’s stuck in quite a rut
A rut is easily lifted if you let this knowledge sink in
Sink in so you never ask, “anadiplosis is what?”

“Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. Suffering follows when you read poetry like this. This is not my original quote. Quote me properly or not at all, shall you!” —Yoda.
