It seems to me that some people are being seriously misled by their mirrors.

Irresistible?

 

I think there’s been a glut of those mirrors that will lie

and I’m gonna explain to you the reasons I think why.

 

There sure are lots of people who are awash in vanity,

the reasons for this being so are very hard to see --

 

the ones who feel they’re irresistible, that no one would refuse

and then remain pig-ignorant to all the ‘back off’ clues.

 

There are many people I could name but I’m thinking now of one,

you really can’t escape him even though he’s far from won.

 

Does he stand up to the mirror that hangs upon the wall

and ask it every day ‘Who is the fairest of them all?’

 

It must be a mindless drone or scared to tell the truth

if it then says, ‘Why, you are!’ to one that’s so uncouth.

 

There’s not much escape from his face or, worse, his voice,

I’d tune myself right out of it if I had the choice.

 

Maybe all these mirrors should crack up when they fall

and stop conceiting people who simply make skin crawl;

 

until then it seems that the deluded still do see

a vision of themselves with which I never could agree.
