Bias - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

In ancient sacrificial rites
why did they slaughter the lamb
and not the lion?
Too inconvenient.

In modern sacrificial rites
why is bias often directed toward the weak,
the meek, those who stray from the herd?
So convenient.

    yes, people pick on others who can be easily beaten.... that's the way of life. Alone we are week, but together we are stronger. The weeklings have numbers and they can (we can) use that to our advantage..... GO the Lambs! ! ! ! (Report) Reply
