"This one stirs up cosmos"

This one stirs up bubbles.
That one splices and fries.
The other one doesn’t stir—
at least not in prime time.  
This one stirs up cosmos. 
That one stirs for tips.
The other one chews her ice.
This one drinks just soda.
That one dies a pauper.
The other one makes a killing.
This one loves two cats.
That one was my barber.
The other one moved to Frasier.
Diane’s not as good a stirrer.
