Bruce Lee was once trapped
In a hall of mirrors.
A few ferocious kicks later
Even while being pursued
He smashed the mirrors
And escaped.

In Forced Entertainment
The mirrors multiply

Watch, sit, look away
They remain.
And multiply.

Is there someone in pursuit
Is it your own mind
Is it them on stage

Are they chickens?
Are you chicken?
Will you smash the mirrors
And escape?
