Three’s Crowd (A Poem)

Two is company

Three, a crowd

Two is a couple

Three, a trio

How many are ideal then?

Because two is too less, some think.

Three’s crowd they say, but is it really too many?

Twins are a surprise

Triplets, often a burden

Can families have an ideal size?

Some have none,

Some, three,

While some, a fullhouse

There are those too, who are just two,

A couple, no solo, no twins, and no triplets.

Three’s crowd they say, but is it really too many?

Then there are social gatherings too

Can an ideal group size be defined?

Two or three is just family,

And somebody might feel bad if left out or forgotten,

It becomes too many then,

Would that be a crowd?

Three’s crowd they say, but is it really too many?
