Leo has a sister, and she’s taller by an inch
She has never met a single man, can match her in a clinch
Liz has got a brother, though he isn’t quite as small
Four foot nine of energy, an atomic super ball

Mandy looks into Dave’s eyes, now the families have met
This isn’t future sibling love, I think I’d make that bet!
Dave’s red hair is cut next day and Mandy’s bought a dress
Here’s another pair of lovers who are looking to impress

Eleven foot two of sex appeal, if you add them end to end
Their eyes betray that each has found, a loving lifelong friend
Liz and Leo sizzle but this pair are twice as hot
In every way a perfect match with problems “not a lot”

Their parents look on quite bemused, life they know is strange
Their children’s choice of partners shows that love has quite a range
Although all four are very pleased, at this happy pair of pairs
What sizes will their grandkids be if they get unequal shares!!!

Author notes

This family seems to be making a take-over bid!
