Human Bias


I watched the film A Time To Kill last night

Always was a bit behind the curve

Been listening to Amy McDonald This is the Life

How did I miss her? Must have swerved


Anyway the film I did enjoy

It brought to light the bias we employ

Eager for our own

The rest we can disown

The world is black and white

You listening boy?


No Irish no Blacks no dogs

The sign in boarding houses

For a time

We don’t want the other sort

We only want our own

Narrow thinking narrow living



The film holds a mirror up to me

I can be just as narrow don’t you see

Tension causes us to seek our own

Cross divides you never can come home
