Riddle me this?

Mates unbalanced,
Or so they seem;
But paired in tandem,
A deadly team.

She so gently round,
Him so firm and straight,
Yet when they are compounded,
Woe to them they hate.


  1. Is it a bullet to a rifle?

  2. my guesses are either a cannon & ball, or baseball and bat.

  3. I would have said bow and arrow.

    I'm not sure about the bullet to rifle because I'm not sure how 'round' a bullet is, but like I said, I'm not sure.

    I hope a baseball and bat aren't deadly! ;-) But I would have to say cannon and ball are a good combo for this riddle.

  4. Maybe if I had said black powered musket and ball?? I like the cannon answer.

  5. That makes sense to me. I'm just not a gun expert... ;-)

  6. so what is the ACTUAL answer.

  7. The actual answer is a bow and arrow. Or, at least, that's the historical answer. But as with most riddles, multiple answers are possible.
