Lying

https://hellopoetry.com/poem/4423363/lying/

Dr Zik By the structural point of view this poem ‘Lying’ is a continuous Ziket i.e, related to a shorter poetic form than Haiku ‘Ziket’, in English Literature in the poet-modern period of English Literary History. It shows Ziket’s color throughout the reading as:

1. A Ziket consists of two poetic lines.
2. The first line has 1 to 8 syllables and the second line has 1 to 5 syllables or vice versa.
3. The longest Ziket has a total of 13 syllables. e.g. Walt Whitman’s

4. The shortest Ziket has a total of 2 syllables;

one syllable in each poetic line.

In the poem “Lines on the Antiquity of Microbes” Strickland Gillilan has written two poetic lines, the first line contains 2 syllables and the second line has also 2 syllables.

Dr. Maya Angelou did in her poem “Tears” where 100 % Ziket’s colors have been found. https://bit.ly/3i7YBa7

John Donne in his poem “For Whom The Bell Tolls”, https://bit.ly/3fjbQ5K

And if we look far behind in past, we see the Walt Whitman who did in his famous poem “O Captain! My Captain!”:

Structural Analysis:

The poet has written two Zikets in four lines to express the same theme in the poem ‘Lying’ written by Dr. Peter Lim. In this way, he has used 100 % Ziket’s water to irrigate the beautiful flowers’ bed of the poem.

Give me someone
who has NEVER lied to themselves

(The first line contains 4 syllables out of a total of 5 ones and the second line has 8 syllables out of a total of 8 ones)

I would regard
such a saint or a charlatan

(The first line contains 4 syllables out of a total of 5 ones and the second line has 8 syllables out of a total of 8 ones)

In this way, it can be said that Dr. Peter Lim is a famous Ziketeer from Australia. He is also nominated as a Zikorean for his literary services in writing poems with the shades of Zikorean Poetry.
No doubt, Dr. Peter Lim is the first Zikorean poet living in Australia. I recommend his name as ‘Zikorean Ambassador’ in Australia.

There are several countries where many international famous poets had been writing short poetic lines or poems exact in short poetic forms like Ziket and Zinet without mentioning or knowing their specific names for many centuries before the second decade of the 21st century.

Now after the invention of the Zikorean Poetry, there are more than one hundred countries in all the continents except Antarctica where Ziketeers and Zineteers collectively called the Zikoreans are living and have been writing Zikorean poetry in the post-modern short forms of Ziket and Zinet since 2015. These are the wonderful inventions in the post-modern period of English Literary History.
