Mirror, Mirror On The Wall

The wicked witch had a magic mirror,

That magnified everything really well.

In fact, the magic mirror, magnified the witch as well.

The magic mirror magnified everything so miraculously,

It magnified everything endlessly.

Very soon, the witch’s hat was as big as an umbrella,

Quite a miraculous feat for a fortune – teller.

“Mirror, mirror, on the wall,

Who is the fairest of them all”.

The mirror was so magic,

That it magnified the hall ! Soon, all around the house,Everything was magnified,

(including the mouse !).

The magic mirror magnified the cat,

It magnified the hatstand,

As well as every hat !

It magicked the rug,

And every single bug,

Soon the house was full of creepy crawlies,

Run up and down the stairs and the wallies.
