Frankie and Paddy

Frankie and Paddy
are twins
but they’re the opposite of identical
Paddy rubs it in
twenty times a day:
I’m good at football
you’re not
I’m muscly
you’re not
I’m tough
you’re not.
Corinne says Yeah, but yer a knob.

Corinne’s more like Frankie’s sister than his cousin
they’re the same age, round each others houses
hanging out, eating, watching tv.
Frank and Corinne are both dark haired, brown eyed,
Paddy’s fair, with bristle crew cut,
that’s why people used to think that Frank and Corinne
were the twins.
