~In the middle of the night,
 In the broad of daylight,
  Two  female dead men soldiers got up to fight,
   Back to back they were face to face,
   They drew their swords and shot each other,
  They smiled a beautiful ugly frown,
Laying down they marched around~

~They lived on the earth dead,
   Being in heaven in hell they said,
    Overjoyed in heaven in hell in dread, 
  Pete and Fred in heaven in hell was fed,
The hell of the joy of Pete and Fred~

~These two lovers living in heaven, on the earth were dead,
   Living in the heaven of hell was Susan and Fred,
    Overjoyed in heaven in hell in dread,
     Susan and Fred in heaven in hell was fed,
     This story is about the hell of the joy Susan and Fred
  Pete and Fred were two lovers living although they were dead
Pete was Susan, Susan was Fred????~

For  contest: Oxymoronia
For and in honor of Kristen Bruni

    Very clever, John! Filled with some great oxymorons. I'm laughing thinking about Susan being Fred in heaven. I did kind of a similar sexual mixup in Falsifying Truth and, like yours, the truth isn't revealed until the end. This is a fun contest and I wish you success! Love, Carolyn PS -- the "fish story" was totally true, every word.
