) Theme/Central Idea:
The central idea of the poem is the physical resemblance shared by identical twins that it can create confusion amongst other people. It shows the problems faced not only by the twins themselves but by their families and friends in identifying one from the other.
This poem particularly talks about one of the brothers that feels he is suffering because of the resemblance with his twin. He feels he gets unfairly treated or targeted because of the deeds of his brother. The poem is humourous in nature and talks about twins in a light-hearted manner.

In this poem, the poet tells what difficulties or problems could be faced by identical twins, in a funny way. one of the twins is the speaker of the poem, who describes how he has troubles throughout his life due to similar features of their similitude.
the twins are very beautiful and they can wear same dress and looking like same
In form and feature, face and limb, I grew so like my brother, That folks got taking me for him, And each for one another. It puzzled all our kith and kin, It reached a fearful pitch; For one of us was born a twin, Yet not a soul knew which.One day, to make the matter worse, Before our names were fixed, As we were being washed by nurse, We got completely mixed; And thus, you see, by fate’s decree, Or rather nurse’s whim, My brother John got christened me, And I got christened him.This fatal likeness even doggedMy footsteps, when at school, And I was always getting flogged, For John turned out a fool. I put this question, fruitlessly, To everyone I knew, ‘What would you do, if you were me, To prove that you were you?’Our close resemblance turned the tideOf my domestic life, For somehow, my intended bride Became my brother's wife. In fact, year after year the same Absurd mistakes went on, And when I died, the neighbours came And buried brother John.
