On Stereotypes

I put this up on Twitter, but it should also be here. A new section of my big, serious poem.

The whole thing so far can be found here.

Human nature rarely changes.
If you want to know its ways,
Learn the wisdom of the ages.
It has clues to life’s big maze.

Billions of observations
Coalesce into a truth.
Quirks and traits of all the nations,
Habits of old age and youth.

Let the stereotypes guide you.
Curse the fools who call them crude.
Study them, and they’ll provide you
Truths that science never could.
