My Favorite Oxymoron

It took me a while to learn the meaning of Oxymoron. After reading the answer of my friend Aayush I immediately recalled these three lines “

“People Talking without speaking,

People hearing without listening,

people writing songs, that voices never share”

These particular lines in the lyrics of the legendary composition “ THE SOUND OF SILENCE by Simon and Garfunkel” is the best oxymoron I’ve heard till date. Maybe it’s all because of the song which is one among the best songs ever written “EVER”.

PS: This is Aayush’s Favorite Oxymoron:

One morning in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
They turned their backs and faced each other,
Took out their swords and shot one another.
Two deaf policemen hearing the noise,
Came to rescue the two dead boys.
If you don’t believe this lie is true,
Then ask the blind man he saw it too!
