13/6/18 – Olsen

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
Always shared their things.

Recycling bins, Ryvita thins
And countless drawing pins.
Baked bean tins, jugs of gin
And a love of newspaper spin.

These two twins shared everything
Which made Ashley’s secret hard to keep in.

“Look!” she buckled, opening a bag one day,
“It’s my collection of strangers’ skin!”

“My God!” said Mary-Kate, with a nervous grin,
“I too collect bags of skin!”

The sisters laughed,
Emptied their bags in the bath
And hugged before both dived in.
