Hypocrisy in Etheree form
August Round 5 Prompt 1

Masks
conceal
dark secrets
in shameful zones,
where hypocrisy
configures vile deceit
and suffers no consequence,
until we cast off the fa├žade
to reveal such ghastly character
hiding behind audacious subterfuge.



Author's note: The Etheree is a syllabic form of ten lines, beginning with one syllable in the first line and progressing to ten syllables in the last line, as explained and demonstrated through examples in the following link: http://www.shadowpoetry.com/resources/wip/etheree.html
