Having Fun With Oxymorons

Have you ever met this riddle

As you’ve walked throughout your life?

A pessimistic optimist,

A materialistic mystic,

Prejudicial towards tolerance,

And realistic dreamer…

A sedentary sportsman,

Ecological consumer

Not to speak of fighter for peace and

Silent conversationist!

A hunter and animalist…

A pragmatic idealist not to speak of

A male feminist.

An international nationalist

A capitalistic socialist

And just to top it off…

An organized anarchist.

My friend the oxymoron,

Walks the world among us,

And it might well surprise you to find

He’s hidden everywhere even in your soul.

Now tell me my dear friends

what do you think now of my

Rhyme?

Have you any more examples?

Please share them here with me,

If you can spare the time,

At that point we will read them and decide

Maybe agreeing to disagree!
