Horace
My darling, we are meant to be together;
Oh, can't you feel the chemistry between us?
For you alone could make my life complete,
That's clear to everyone who's ever seen us.

Ophelia
Oh, Horace, I am glad to hear you say
That I could ever make you feel complete,
But I, alas, I do not feel that way
Although, of course, I think you're very sweet.

Horace
I understand, my love, your hesitation,
I'll never measure up; I simply can't.
But you, you're like the air I breathe,
And I, alas! I'm insignificant.


Ophelia
Don't weep, dear Horace; you've much to be admired,
For there's a sweetness in simplicity,
And though you'll never make me feel complete,
I feel a certain electricity.

Harrison
My darling, we are meant to be together;
Oh, can't you feel the chemistry between us?
For you alone could make my life complete,
That's clear to everyone who's ever seen us.

Ophelia
Oh dear! There's two of you! How could it be?
And now, confused, my brain begins to spin;
Whoever would have thought that I could love
Two indistinguishable twins?

Horace and Harrison
Oh, can't you feel the love, Ophelia?
And don't you feel this powerful attraction?
Don't stand aloof and stare at us like that;
Impatiently we wait for your reaction.
We'll make a splash like there has never been,
When hydrogen combines with oxygen!

Not wanting to beat everyone over the head with awful puns, but...I hope you noticed the "air I breathe," "reaction" and "make a splash" puns...

Hahaha, I needed a laugh after I read Hannah's piece.
