Shel Silverstein-Mirror, Mirror

QUEEN:Mirror, mirror on the wall.
Who is the fairest of them all?
MIRROR:Snow White, Snow White, snow white--
I’ve told you a million times tonight.
QUEEN:Mirror, mirror on the wall,
What would happen if I let you fall?
You’d shatter to bit with a clang and a crash,
Your glass would be splintered--swept out with the trash,
Your frame would be bent, lying here on the floor--
MIRROR:Hey … go ahead, ask me just once more.
QUEEN:Mirror, mirror on the wall.Who is the fairest of them all?MIRROR:You--you--It’s trueThe fairest of all is you--you--you.(Whew!)

"Mirror, Mirror" by Shel Silverstein

(I hope I haven't broken copyright by posting the entire poem...but if I did, it was already on the web, I got the text from here...I figure I'm safe from copyright issues if it's already available at a google search?)
