Default Man in the Glass

THE MAN IN THE GLAS

When you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you king for a day,
Just go to a mirror and look at yourself,
And see what THAT man has to say.

For it isn't your father or mother or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass;
The Fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass.

You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum
And think you're a wonderful guy,
But the man in the glass says you're only a bum
If you can't look him straight in the eye.

He's the fellow to please, never mind all the rest,
For he's with you clear up to the end,
And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test
If the man in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears
If you've cheated the man in the glass.

There has been a lot published about the poem/song/play -- several claim authorship -- not sure who to believe.. but I found this interesting...


The Official Guy in the Glass Web Page

I do believe that Alcohol Anonymous people use it and teach it -- a good thing.
