I Married both

I swore an oath and married both.
Two brides of unalterable growth.
Monogamy's Polygamy.

And one of them is dreamy eyed.
And one of them pure cyanide.
And never shall this twain farewell.

A dilemma of the ages.
Male and female separate stages,
Monogamy's polygamy.

Within us both lays shangri-la.
Our valley and your alcazar.
But heaven tolls on separate bells

And each I fear will not ring done
Unless the bells are wrung as one.

Sey: What an interesting situation. Great thought process to bring this around to the final two lines. Most enjoyable!

Just wondering ever heard the song 'Suddenly Seymour' from Little Shop Of Horrors. Everytime I read your name I think of it...just some trivia for you

You all do me honor to read and comment on this humble poet.

Ringing your bell is not easy. Thank you.
