Political - Bias

What is beautiful

Can be ugly

What can be bad

Can be good

It all depends on the eyes

The eyes than can see through the bias

That surrounds everything

 

White

Can turn

Black

And

Darkness

Can conceal hidden

Light

It all depends on the eyes

The eyes that can see through the bias

That surrounds everything

 

A criminal

May be

Innocent, but

Due to bias

Is convicted

Because

His skin

Is dark

 

The truth

May be

Concealed

Because,

Someone paid

Another person

To Hide

The truth

And cover it with lies

 

And bias is everywhere

Unknowingly influencing

How we act

What we do

Everything we believe

 

Bias

Can mean

That an

Officer

Can shoot someone

Because

They don't like them

That is

Premeditated

Attempted

Murder

With

Bias

Aforethought

 

Bias

Is dangerous

It can cost a life

It can kill

And incorrectly imprison

Because

People can't look

Though the bias

That clouds their vision

That shows their beliefs

Are the only truth

That makes them believe

They are right,

And everyone else

Is wrong
