Oh! Tweedledee and Tweedledum
A horoscope is like a kaleidoscope
Changing situations that muddle mindsets
Experiences that have unlike aspects
Don’t let a tube with colored pieces inside
Determine the day the music died
Note fractals are never-ending patterns
Whether a left turn, right turn or U-turns
Let the randomness of life unravel
Map out journies that razzle-dazzle
If you don’t use your time wisely
At least keep it blithely tidy
