I believe that mankind’s greatest attribute is the inability to see oneself without the use of a mirror. Just imagine if we could see ourselves when we are acting the fool, drunk or just having one of those days, we’d never go out in public again. The mirror has one great advantage, it never gives a true picture…
Mirror, Mirror, on the wall,
Who looks like a bloody fool?
Whose hair looks like a broken bale?
That’s on the roadside verge a fail.
Who doesn’t know when to keep mouth shut?
Ends each sentence with a ‘but’.
Who has less talent than a brick?
And sometimes acts like a ‘stupid prick!’
Who has faults he cannot see?
That can’t possibly be me!
