Fair Play Poem by Benjamin Zephaniah

Fair Play

Rating: 3.7

Mirror mirror on the wall
Could you please return our ball
Our football went through your crack
You have two now
Give one back.

Susan Williams 13 October 2015

mirrors reflect what we do backwards- -twice the boys have thrown a ball through the window now they think they're not being done right by because the owner of the window has kept both balls instead of giving one back- -isn't that true? we all see ourselves as the ill-used one

Very true. Only an innocent mind of poet can understand its scientific truth and beauty behind the words.

When my son was about two years old, I showed him my reflection in the mirror and said your real Mother is there.She has gone inside and I am the Mirror Mother. He believed and became afraid to come near me.It took me a while to convince him that I am his real mother.

Cute! Innocence! Yet to be familiar with the scientific truth of optical illusion!

A lovely piece of writing! A mirror gives an illusion that seems so real! Unless one understands what a mirror is, he may believe in that illusion.

An innocent mind sees and believes the optical beauty and beauty as a truth not as an optical illusion.
