The Oxymoron (Really Funny)


Oxymorons are 2 contradicting words,
Now tell me, isn't that absurd?

An example of this is virtual reality,
Is that possible or just a casual formality?

What about the living dead,
Am I just being a butt head?

Am I leading this into a fine mess?
Isn't this moment priceless?

Don't worry; the poem is nearly done,
I'm just having a bit of serious fun.

Am I truly a big baby?
Well, it's a definite maybe.

Well I'm going to give you a practice test,
Tell me now, who is the second best.

I thank God that I'm an Atheist,
Also thank Him that I am a cautious optimist.

Now I am all alone,
In my office that's also my home.

Eating my very bland spice,
Wasn't this poem awfully nice?

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
