When opposites don’t pull their weight


Opposites attract, or so they say.
But one can also tell
That, as with magnets turned away,
They frequently repel.

A trampoline, with straps one side
Where threads have come apart,
Although the opposites abide,
To lose its bounce will start.

It is a mission here to find
Where one can get it sewn,
Needs must, though it will be a bind,
I’ll do it on my own.
