• Superstition Never hang a mirror On an outside wall, All the wraiths of darkness Drifting through the night See it as a beacon Calling them to light. Through it they’ll come crowding Seeking warmth and life. Hungry ghouls from graveyards Will be hiding in your house. Every room will have one With its nasty ways Bringing fear and sickness Feeding on your flesh, Sucking out your life force, Sending you insane. Better that you’d broken Every mirror in the house. What’s a bit of bad luck When a devil’s at your throat? So listen when I tell you Before it is too late, ‘Never hang a mirror On an outside wall’. Peter A. Crowther
