One Thing and another...

Thing One and Thing Two;
Scary starey eyes and hair that is blue.
Two twin things dressed the same just for fun;
Luckily labelled Thing Two and Thing One.

Inspired by this (presumably an homage to Dr. Seuss).

Introspective retrospective

Those women I've loved
Needs for children, love unmet
No parsnips buttered

Oily as a Dickensian candle's wick.
Offers timeless advice for staying tax-free:
"Get hold of portable property."

On seeing Spielberg's Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln
abolished Slavery for one
and for an encore
met at the theatre a dreadful bore

or do you prefer

Abraham Lincoln
ended Slavery's despicable run
To him the 13th owed its genesis
but the 2nd proved his nemesis
