Oxymoron plus humor in Magpie Tales




Silent wind blows,
Forgotten memories brew;
Midnight Sun glows,
Living ghosts stew;
Open plight,
Closed fight;
Sweet violence,
Thunderous Silence;
Handsome pressure,
Useless treasure;
A rotten beauty,
An offline duty;
A free Style,
A limited pile.

Alphabe-Thursday U is for useless treasure

ABC Wednesday  H is for handsome pressure
