Twenty-five seconds apart they began,
to lives most anticipated,
baby girls as they were told
and less than nine months they had waited.
Baby Girl #1, her shoulders were wider
than her “kid” sister floating beside her,
she “paved” the way and with the next slightest push,
her twin sister quickly arrived with a “SWOOSH”!

~Process notes – My niece gave birth to twins in short order. She couldn’t even catch her breath between them before they were both sucking air outside of mom’s constraints. Domino’s doesn’t even deliver that quickly! Rapid arrivals, both!


Sleazy Steve set off on foot,
he stole some lady’s purse.
A soul once meekly in control,
she set off after Steve and cursed.
This girl refined had lost her mind,
as a matter of course, she was not far behind.
Swaying through the maddening crowd
quite mobile; gazelle-like her foot steps flowed.
In younger days she would avoid him,
but when she catches his ass, she’ll destroy him!
