Mirror Image

In the mirror I looked Then gave out a shout It seems all my hair Had just fallen out. In the mirror I looked Intending to pose When I saw that I'd lost The tip of my nose. In the mirror I looked And shook with great fear I just don't know how I'd lost my left ear. Considering the things I suddenly lack I bought a new mirror And they all came back!

For a minute I thought you had been looking in my mirror but I still have my nose (probably a little more) and i still have both ears, though since I have less hair, they naturally look bigger. Fun stuff, Ray:)
