Etc.

I really like this use of repetition. I've always felt that rhyme had 
little place in Klingon poetry, since you usually just end up rhyming 
the same suffixes over and over again. What you've done here has not 
only repeated words or suffixes, but a repeated beat (with minor 
variations). I could see this being used in a march or fanfare. I 
imagine it chanted rather than put to music.
