Mirror

Ben has nailed a mirror up for all his warlike girls
To practise their karate skills with punches, kicks and twirls.
They watch their own reflections to get their catas right
Goaded by their brown belt Mum they practise day and night…
But what is this? A dancing girl – with arabesque so cute –
It’s Amber acting Carmen, to Grandpa’s silver flute!
