  1. I read an article in The Economist newspaper about conservative American religious groups trying to influence African elections and legislation. On american clergy stopping gay marriage in africa (A Rime Couée) I read on what we now export -- Hate and shame -- which makes me retort, "My God is not in this!" As if their rights were not denied Enough, Gays now stand to be pried From life of married bliss. The right to wed must not be stopped By clergy seeking to co-opt The broadness of God's love. Unlike Prophets with many wives, What is sought for is just two lives To be blest from above. These White clergy that intervene, In what is surely racist scene, Must from their edge step back. Why don't they stop polygamy? Or would that end their trickery And expose what they lack?

    Rime Couée

    Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry French Verse Rime Couée is a tail-rhymed verse form of 12th century Provencal troubadours. Though it originated in France, it is thought to be the predecessor of the more popular Scot form, the Burns Stanza. The elements of Rime Couée are: stanzaic, written in any number of sixains made up of two tercets. accentual, folk meter of normal speech. L1,L2, L4, L5 are longer lines of a similar length, L3 and L6 are shorter lines of the same length. rhymed, rhyme scheme aabccb, ddeffe etc. Press Conference by Judi Van Gorder Reluctant words stuttered through thin lips, halting syllables prepared to eclipse, diverting the blame. A simple "I'm sorry", would have sufficed, For him those words are too high priced, skirting the shame.
