1835, Invention Of Mirror

Poet Chan Mongol
October 21 of 2019

Tell me! Tell me! Tell me hello mirror
Where you been 2 hundreds years before?
Mohammad, Jesus, Abram, Moses
Buddha couldn't have seen own faces.
Even, Alexander the great, the world conqueror
He had no chance to see own face in mirror.
World was running trillions of years without mirrors
It was invented by a German and came to our doors.
German chemist invented thin paint, looks like the tar
One side of the glass painted with crumbs of silver.
In 1835, the successful invention of mirror was made
The German chemist was Justus von Liebig as was said.
To know thyself and to see own front and face
A mirror is so so important for all of us nowadays.
Back side and inside are hidden and fixed innate
Face and front are outside and a mirror is to dictate.
To show index of mind, we all want to look better
To be liked, the front side is checked by the mirror.
