mirror on the wall
Do you have to tell it all?
do you get the glaring light
To make my clothes look just too tight?
think I'm fine but I can see
you won't cooperate with me;
way you let the shadows play
You'd think my hair was getting gray.
that, you say? A double chin?
No, that's the way the light comes in;
you persist in peering so
You'll confiscate my facial glow,
then if you're not hanging straight
You'll tell me next I'm gaining weight;
really quite upset with you
For giving this distorted view;
hate you being smug and wise ~
O, look what's happened to my thighs!
warn you now, O mirrored wall,
Since we're not on speaking terms at all,
I look like this in my new jeans,
You'll find yourself in smithereens!
