the numbers game

they come in twos
they like it that way
they were never alone
but they'd never stay

they once did three
to set them free
yet somehow
it wouldn't let them be

it gnawed, it scratched
their cosy nights
and cracked it into
petty fights

no cage no rules
we're nobody's fools
luscious lust
the game's a must

it wasn't he
it wasn't she
so who would win
this game of three

the sun is set
the pillow's wet
and did they rue
the loss of two?
