the eighties – year of my birth

two – brother and sister, the perfect number

two – Sir B and Izzie, pets I loved but lost

two – the almighty fairy god father and mother

everything I love is in twos

I hear even my teeth grew in twos

twos and me have a thing

Twos!!

ten and two strokes I received for noise in class

Miss Chuka, my teacher bellowed, you’re just an ass

two – number of times I’ve been in love

thirty two things you love about me

six 2 five reasons we think we cannot be

I want to so climb up a tree

twos and me so have a thing
