    “One of these things is not like the other”

    One of these things is not like the other!
    They are both light pink, with purple heads.
    One’s a bit fatter, the other has enough hair
    to fill several pillows, then stuff the whole bed.

    Both have eyes like slits at their ends.
    Both often flabby, plump, softer than butter.
    Both turn red, stretch and go erect, but
    this must be the sister, and that twin, the brother.

    one of these things is not like the other.
    like walking on soft sand verses walking on hard rocks.
    the paint on shelf, black and white
    black out the light, but lighten up your life with white.
    draw your own picture in the dark, make sense of it.
