Mirror, Mirror – Shattered Mirror

by Jim Rapp

The icons are falling like sullen rain;
the young sons and young daughters of Cain
are needlessly dying again and again;
their beauty distorted by mirrors of pain.

Three score and ten, the span of a man.
But an icon – an icon is more than a man;
and must stand iconic as long as he can;
mirrors be damned for an iconic man!

The icons are falling like sullen rain;
the young sons and young daughters of Cain
are needlessly dying again and again;
their beauty distorted by mirrors of pain.

Three score and ten, the span of her fame.
But iconic beauty must stay the same,
defying mirrors that are making the claim
that icons are subject to adam’s mortmain.

The icons are falling like sullen rain;
the young sons and young daughters of Cain
are needlessly dying again and again;
their beauty distorted by mirrors of pain.
