The Cool-Colored Glass 


Mirrored lenses change perspective
We see out of them with new directive
For everything is colored in cooler shade
And the edges are then sharpened by the trade

When we remove them, we warm all of the tones
But the edges are no longer so-well-honed
The trade-off we make - to reduce the overall glare ...
Polarizing the sun's effect - permitting our stare

For, without the mirrors, the eyes can be seen
But polarizing glass cuts off others, clean
So we can look wherever we choose to ...
And nobody else can then accuse you ...

- Tristram
