The dramatic element used to indicate a dream sequence (flash-forward or flash-back).
Went to the bathroom to wash up,
I threw some soap on my face,
And put my hands upon a cup,
And said um:
Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the top dog of them all?,
There was a ruffle-duffel,
Five minutes had lasted,
The mirror said: YOU ARE YOU CONCEITED BASTARD!!
