Horses For Courses: A Chiasmus?

Course its a horse

Stole one of my Niece’s photos of a horse…messed with it in ‘PAINT’

Chiasmus

In rhetoric, a verbal pattern (a type of antithesis) in which the second half of an expression is balanced against the first with the parts reversed. Essentially the same as antimetabole.

Note that a chiasmus includes anadiplosis, but not every anadiplosis reverses itself in the manner of a chiasmus.

“Fair is foul, and foul is fair.”
(William Shakespeare, Macbeth I.i)

“We do not get good laws to restrain bad people. We get good people to restrain bad laws”
Guess who?
