SIXTY-SIX

Twins swoon in a womb,
the same the same.
What are they called?
Six is their name, their name.
Six to six swims
In a watery room.
Six, six, sixty six,
similar spoons,
synonymous notes
in the same tune.

Carol Ann Duffy

SIXTY-SIX repeats numbers in pairs
11's it has in six shares
22 lots of three's
Or two 33's
If you look then the patterns are there
