Pete and Paul

We look both the same how could this be
Two peas in a pod that's you and me
When we were babies we both dressed the same
The only thing different I suppose was our name.

I was called Pete and you was called Paul
Time went so fast we grew very tall
We're much older now but still look the same
Two peas in a pod with a different name.

I remember one day when Paul was at school
He did something wrong he broke the school rule
The next day came but Pete got the blame
Two peas in a pod they both look the same.

Paul had a girlfriend she was so very nice
But when she saw Pete she had to look twice
She said Pete are you Paul, he thought and said yes
She gave him a kiss so he had to confess.

I'm sorry Pete said I think your confused
I'm not really Paul, she wasn't amused
You're like two peas in a pod you both look the same
Who am I dating I'm going insane.

    So rich with wit! I love the idea of twins playing games with their friends. I knew two girls in high school who were twins. One was better at math -- the other English. Come time for these classes, they traded places and the teachers never learned the truth. I thoroughly enjoyed this read, Leon, and I think we have a contest winner here! Great work and so much fun to read! Happy Friendship Week, Leon. Love, Carolyn
