On listening to a mirror

Some things are just plainly wrong, others obviously right, and all the rest, well my thoughts on that below.

Mirror mirror on the wall,

Who is the fairest of them all?

“You are, that is what you think you see,

And thus you do agree with me.”

“But if I said another’s fair,

To whom your youth does not compare,

You’d state you firmly disagree,

And would not put your trust in me.”

“And so with subjects high and low,

You seek opinion just to know

Your preformed thoughts are always right,

And others lack your deep insight.”

“So when you think that someone’s wrong,

Think deep and high, and wide and long,

Try to look from other’s view,

And you may see a lovelier you.”
