In poetry:

Yet the superstition
In which we have grown up, not therefore loses
When we detect it, all its influence on us.
Not all are free that can bemock their fetters.
"Nathan The Wise - Act IV" by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

The heavy purple of the tranquil sky
Shed its oft-broken promises of peace,
While twinkling stars bemocked the worn-out lie!
"Sher Afzul" by Laurence Hope
We look across the landscape wide,
Where spring bemocks the thought of pain,
And scatters charms with lavish pride;--
The vernal joy is all in vain:
Sweet Lilly, come again,
Sweet Lilly, come again.
"Lilly: A Poem" by James Avis Bartley
Bemock, O Almighty, the foes that bemock her,
Avenge with due vengeance her insults and shame,
In her stress be a rock of support 'gainst her foeman,
Nor yield up the child Thou to manhood didst frame.
