Present Company Excepted / Androgyny

He’s a devilish guide – this man in my mind
– best not use cross words aimed in my direction –
I may be ready to pounce – you’ll never know
– when troubles mount & I’m wound tight as a drum –

That presence in mind amuses me so & I can’t let go
– sharpening my wit when I’m on the decline –
He keeps my company day-in & day-out
– why, he’s even there in the dead of night –

Joined at the hip – hoping I never slip
– who knows why I can only surmise –
But I’m certain I’m not the only exception to the rule
– present company accepts the challenge to do good or die –
