We are a great pair,Like a box of fancy shoes.Two peas in a pod, not three.Comfortable, dark blue denim jeansA 2 for 1 deal,The fries to my McDonald's.The juice in my sippy cup.The oxygen moving in my lungs,2 bodies, 1 mind.The blood coursing through my veins,The spine that keeps me up straight. My bacon, egg and cheese with a bev,The ink […]
