The mirror

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.

Often I think my mirror already shows that to me. : ) Really well written Ron, this is a classic.
