Uncountable world of two
a world of two
a world of alternatives
a world of contrasts
a world of opposites
a world of companionship
a world of unity
a world of togetherness
a world of two that often
merges to become one world

Two that scrubs monotony
from the skin of life
a world of two that makes one
lonesome, loathsome and dreadful

Uncountable world of two
side by side
left and right
eye eye
ear ear
nostril nostril
cheek cheek
hand hand
breast breast
leg leg
a pleasant world of two

a beautiful world
like lovely doves
where one falters
the other triumphs
for the good of all
heaven earth
man woman
king queen
eagle falcon
lion lioness
dog bitch
hare doe
two that are better than one

positive and negative
God and satan
righteousness and sin
paradise and hell
day and night
light and darkness
a wonderful world of two
that makes the earth a medley

as one expires
the other is born
a fascinating world
of a professional painter
ambidextrously displaying his
skill on two transparent canvasses
love and hatred
sweet and bitter
peace and war
success and failure
joy and sadness
young and old
life and death

an uncountable world of
a splendid world of two
providing accommodation for all.
