Dear Bias, Okay I Admit It
A Letter to You....
Okay I admit it.
I am biased about loving puppies and kittens; men with great smiles; being part of interesting conversations; love, harmony and ease; all being given opportunities to do better, be better and give better; loving temperate weather; creating through words, pictures and the divination arts; and loving those who are not afraid to be tender hearted and follow their good conscience.
Bias and beauty both lie in the eye of the beholder. But how much free range should we give them?
Here is a poem about being lopsided-biased.
Dear Bias-A Poem
Jaundiced eyes favour
friends, children, employees whosoever.
Writers zigzag websites
that show a proclivity in hindsight
to photography rather than the word.
Low expectations, high expectations
Trumpeted from the astrologer’s jubilations
or, a psychic medium, that infers
all that was once rapporteur
is thrown out the door
for good or bad evermore.
Do facts vindicate you are correct?
Or, do we use facts to enact
that we are backed?
We are hot potatoes
of experiential data, of vibrato,
together with borrowed opinions,
and cultural provincialism million.
Alain extinguishes the flames of the dragon.
Bias says he is a great candidate for our wagon.
yet, Alain receives financial contributions
from foreign patrons.
Marni fires, while Tim hires.
High turnover of staff transpires.
Who is competent?
Where lies your bias gradient?
Rob is too quiet,
Although he motivates his sales collegiate,
converting 2out 5 customers
into paying newcomers.
Who is too quiet?
Do you wear a white or dark halo?
Or, do we place the halo upon you, piccolo?
Bias is a tendency,
inclination or opinion radiancy,
that comes pre-packaged.
We are never totally free of the zig zag,
the more swerve we wag,
within us, the poorer our acuity of
decisions and their accompanied anxiety.
The more we think of someone,
the more we increase the forerun
of a correct sixth sense, at a glance.
but what about those times,
we didn’t, and we were in the doldrums?
Have you counted those?
Fractals, malformations, blind sides,
clannish, tunnel visions applied,
are facets of bias.
How can we unravel lopsidedness?
We can try on alternate points of view?
Discuss ideas with a few,
Or, people that you steer clear from,
as haters are our critics of mayhem.
Take the time to think over a big decision,
Rather than decide in haste vision.
Its hard I know,
when you are in a pressure cooker woe.
Pay attention to who gave you,
The idea or information to show.
Do they have your best
interests at breast?
Whichever way, plainly distinguee,
what you need to talk over,
with another forgiver.
Be mindful of the stereotypes
you harbour openly or hiddenly promisingly.
Pull closer those who empathise,
yet, who will lovingly challenge you.
