Sleeping Snooty

Mirror, mirror, on the wall,

who’s the one who’s so enthralled

by abusing those who see

past self-centred deity?

It’s served you well to spin the story,

and yet its lost you so much glory.

A little prick – how do you sleep?

No conscience, you shrug off deceits.

But the greater wheel of justice turns,

what comes before a fall confers

a yarn much spoke of as a warning

to others to whom truth is dawning.
