In a castle, in a place unknown,
On the wall behind a giant throne
Hangs a mirror, six feet square
which every mortal should beware.
For the mirror has a magic spell
With a secret, no one will likely tell,
For nobody dare take a look
Into the mirror, lest their soul be shook.
The mirror offers a gruesome surprise
As your face ages before your very eyes,
Month by month, year on year,
Unveiling that moment we all truly fear.
Now the mirror's location is known to me,
Which I will happily pass on to thee,
Should you ever wish to know the place
Where the mirror will reveal your final face.
