Twin Beds are Back

by Scott McFarland

TWIN BEDS are back
Want to make your bed? Fine.
Don’t want to make your bed? Fine.
What’s the greatest His-and-Hers invention of all time?
TWIN BEDS.
Want silk sheets? Fine.
Want cotton sheets? Go ahead.
Want a bunch of pillows? Fine.
No pillows? Fine.
Convenience. Comfort.
Toss and turn all you want.
TWIN BEDS, baby. What are we waiting for?
