The Opposites - Poem by Slava Olchevski

I could be fat, you could be thin
I could be red, you could be green
I could have hair, you could be bold
I could be young, you could be old

I could be weak, you could be strong
I could be right, you could be wrong
Until the people start to yawn
The list could go on and on

The point that I would like to make
Depends on what it is at stake
The opposites of certain kind
Complete each other when combined

Who’s young today, tomorrow’s old
Had head of hair, now – bold
I won’t be lying under oath
It’s either or, but never both!
