An Honest Politician

Calling a politician honest
some say is an oxymoron,
though “oxy” seems 
unnecessarily excessive.

An Oxymoron

Constructive criticism,
A term oft misused.

In enhancing another's,
Daily performance.

Be politically correct,
and leave less abused.

Positive feedback,
Encourages conformance.

Haiku: Listening to Mahler's 9th Symphony

ground fog’s servant role
life’s earthly scent offered up
rain drops coalesce

peace is oxymoron
evolution Nature’s plan
soul deepest meaning

understanding flawed
promises are prismed light
God’s word must be felt

Nine dozens of
Eight nothings
Veranda romance inside
Every man for no man
Running in place
Dearest husband
Or dearest wife
Urban legend
Brutal love
Tall tales
Hidden hate
Sex orgy
Three in a couple
Riot in the bathroom
Universal thought
Timeless fashion
Helpless god

The road

Roads ahead i see no way to go
Troubled, inadequate what way to go
Mesmerized, hanging on, oh anima  of justice 
Free my demons, hide no more i came to conquer 
Discover the deep, recover from pain, live the pain
I own the pain, days are to come i shall overcome 
I am who i am, enlightening, oxymoron 
I am human.

Oxymoron Over Me

Soft and quiet one moment,
Rough and demanding the next.
Underminded and distant another moment,
Outspoken and won't let go seconds later.
Put together and thoughtful after mere minutes,
Unorganized and jumbled awkwardly after.
He has no excuse as to why,
But I do.
My boyfriend is an oxymoron,
When it comes to me.

Short Oxymoron poem by Tanis Troutman| Details |

You are an oxymoron

Always wanting more
Looking for the score
Wanting the reward
They will not be ignored

OxyContin is addictive
That's why it is restricted
Your problem's self inflicted
Get some help, get committed

Everything you owned you pawned
All you do is nod off and yawn
Then pace until the floor is gone
What an Oxy-moron

He's so nice being vicious
He's surprising using cliches

He's so tender being tough
Independer needing love

Though loves me and I am really sure of that
Speaks to me no word for two months now somewhat

He just fits to this contest name folks--

He's full moron weird one ox

Oxymoron contest

Short Oxymoron poem by Timothy Hicks| Details |


Here's an oxymoron
that's sure to brighten your day:
being the selfish head honcho,
in the end never pays;
purchasing personal glory
at the cost of a friend.
But being selfless
helps out everybody else
(and as an added bonus
even yourself)

NOTE: Haven't written anything new since I left Idaho, so I thought I'd share an older poem instead ...

Short Oxymoron poem by Joyce Johnson| Details |


Each day I'm growing shorter
And I was not ever tall.
Perhaps instead of dying
I'll just shrink to none at all.

Is that an oxymoron?
How can anyone grow short?
But that's what he said I'm doing
On my last doctor's report.

So if you find me missing,
I'm not anywhere about,
Don't think I have deleted,
I've just shorted myself out.

Short Oxymoron poem by Rochish mon| Details |


I have desire to
Hear the best song of my own
Nature fly with wings

A divine fragrance –
Sprouted for me suddenly
Flower of silence

Hope needs to have hap
Hap arrives and reaches hope
Living finds its life

While the dawn advents
All the creatures do rise up
Nature smiles for us

Darkness generates 
Light and light invites darkness 
Oxymoron, lives

Awfully nice- oxymoron contest

she had a smile upon her face
people wondered what secret she had inside 
she had kissed and cuddled shyness no trace
does that make me nearly pregnant she cried 

pretty face without the tears
people said of her she was awfully nice
trusting everyone without fears
every body's friend, sadness no trace

oxymorons used. 1). nearly pregnant. and 2). awfully nice.
