They say, you know “they,” they say it’s a fact
that Opposites nearly always attract.
And yet Opposites also sometimes attack.
So why don’t we simply give ‘em the sack?
Because Opposites are relational crack,
they cling to our teeth like emotional plaque,
and build up inside our intestinal tracts.
So here’s a thought, let’s make a pact
to never take any more Opposite flak,
no matter how much the deck is stacked.
We’ll rule the game like what’s-his-name, Shaq,
and debug the hearts they so heartlessly hacked!
Aw, who am I kidding? I know I’ll fall back
into the abyss next time I’m distract-
-ed by that woman who has a knack
for stretching my heart on a riotous rack.
Because, in the end, the intractable fact
is that all of the parts I seem to lack
are there in the woman whose heart is wracked
by me, the Opposite she can’t give back.
