reflectionsI needed to look in the mirror the other day and realized with surprise how few we have in our house! I use one to shave and one to sometimes brush my hair/straighten an occasional tie and that’s about it! However it’s hardly surprising when you consider what a shock my reflection can be…

I looked in the mirror,
What did I see?
A strange old man,
Starred back at me!

His teeth were all crooked,
His hair was askew,
I said to myself,
“This can’t be you!”

“That can’t be me,”
As I reached for a drink!
I gave up on the mirror,
Don’t care what folk think!

Went out to the farm,
Fed the ducks, hens and geese,
Not one of them noticed,
Forgot my false teeth!

Walked across,
To where the grass is,
Suddenly knew the answer,
Give up my glasses!
