Choose two things that are opposites. It could be the opposite sides of a question. Humor is good. The poem should be two or four lines long. The first two and the last two lines should rhyme. Sight rhymes are acceptable.
The opposite of honest
What a lot of people do on a hard test.
--Benjamin Swanson (Grade )
What is the opposite of love?
Maybe it is as beautiful as a white dove.
Because love is so fine,
This is something I know is mine.
What is the opposite of a smile?
Maybe it is a frown that hasn't been seen in awhile.
Because a great smile brightens up the day,
This has made my better in every way.
What is the opposite of true?
It could be purple, or even blue.
Because the truth is better than a lie,
I want the truth even from my special guy.
---Kimiko Brantley (Grade 10)
