Twenty Questions Out By the Pool With Tami and a Twelve Pack

Sean Connery--or Roger Moore?
"Sean Connery," you sigh.
Love--or Money?
"Love," you sigh.
Happiness--or Passion?
You pause. You pause
because you know one is James Dean in his Porsche Spyder--
that silver Icarus going 120 mph straight for the California sun.
And the other--
An old Buick that gets great gas mileage.

One is Liz and Dick caught locked and hissing in the same delicious cage.
And the other--
The same old Doris Day/Rock Hudson flick.
Romantic as twin beds. Domestic as a spoon.

It is true. It is true: One is death, one is birth.
One's a set of terrible twins: Heaven, Hell.
And the other--
Only earth.

all hail Rogan
I have to give Rogan credit for pointing out this little gem with his comment. This is excellent work. It sounds good aloud and expresses the duality of desire vs responsibility and fantasy vs. reality. Excellent work, I for one hope to see more.

I have to agree with both Bart and Rogan, this is great work!! A very descriptive comparison of the dichotomies of life. Thanks for the wonderful read.
