Mirror Mirror, on the Wall by Sid Arbaon

Mirror Mirror, On the wall



Mirror Mirror on the wall,

Who is the fairest of them all?




Is it she who conjures peals of laughter,

But on the inside weeps silver tears?



Mirror Mirror on the wall,

Who is the fairest of them all?



Is it he who talks so large,

But the words carry no meaning?



Mirror Mirror on the wall,

Who is the fairest of them all?



Is it she who plasters makeup on her face like a clown,

Only to cover up the bruises and scars?



Mirror Mirror on the Wall,

Who is the fairest of them all?



Is it he who is found in the dank locked cell,

Only because he dared to speak out?



Mirror Mirror on the wall,

Who is the fairest of them all?



Is it she whose build is like a stick,

But carries the heaviest burden?



Mirrored face on the wall,

Who is the fakest, the truest, of them all?
