The view that the world consists of two fundamental entities, such as mind and matter.
We know that Cynthia is extravagant
but that’s not why she wears hot pants;
being a fervid follower of fashion
she’s an admirer of Mrs. Plunket Greene
who’s better known as Mary Quant.
Though the teenager had developed a passion
for the haute couture of Yves Saint Laurent,
those skimpy shorts were an innovation
that transformed the London scene.
The opportunity to show her shapely legs
was a temptation difficult to ignore
and the youngster after some hesitation
did, in the end, succumb to the lure.
But Artemis, her always alert alter ego,
a model of decorum and sobriety
who believes in the correctness of propriety,
is at hand to urge moderation.
The Moon Goddess is a single entity
whether she’s Cynthia or Artemis
but just like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
each one has a separate identity:
Cynthia’s is purely corporeal,
The other’s is positively spiritual.
