Mirror Mirror

Oh mirror mirror on the wall,
Why do you think I'm two foot tall?
Your height is right for seven dwarves,
But all I see is feet and calves.
I cannot see my face at all,
Unless I kneel, or sit or crawl.
So mirror mirror on the wall,
Whose knees are knobbliest of them all?

About the Poem

If you're familiar with the tale of Snow White you appreciate that sharing a house with seven dwarves can cause all sorts of domestic difficulties, mirror positioning being just a minor one.
