Assumptions and Stereotypes

They plant seeds in our heads,
Listened to all that they said.
The things that are good,
The things that are bad.

Contemporary is good,
Pole dancing is bad.
Skimpy clothing,
Your thinking is sad.

Tattoos are bad,
Are you in a gang?
Don't make assumptions.
I am not my appearance.

Wine is good,
Getting drunk is bad.
Suit and tie,
Having some wine,
Getting drunk,
Does that mean I'm bad?

High necklines are good,
Low necklines are bad.
I can see your cleavage,
Slut! Shaming is sad.

Don't make your assumptions,
Don't listen to stereotypes.
Everything you see,
May not be what it seems.
