  Dorsimbra poem by Australian poet Graeme King - a form poem about religious hypocrisy ©kingpoetry2007.
 

DORSIMBRA

The Dorsimbra, a poetry form created by Eve Braden, Frieda Dorris and Robert Simonton, is a set form of three stanzas of four lines each:
Stanza One: Four lines of Shakespearean sonnet (iambic pentameter rhymed abab).
Stanza Two: Four lines of short and snappy free verse.
Stanza Three: Four lines of iambic pentameter blank verse, where the last line repeats the first line of Stanza One.

The hypocrites are men who turn to drink

Whilst claiming faith in God the Lord above

Imbued with Satan’s nectar as they think

No limits can apply to Heaven’s love

 

some bottled brew confirms gaily

belief in spirit shining bright

mind at ease a quivering barb

as glasses clink

 

Then Sunday they will dress in finest garb

Parade their piety in catwalk’s light

Religious rapture sham sobriety

The hypocrites are men who turn to drink
