Stereotype

I’ve been told I fit a stereotype
I’m tall and male, middle-class and white
And I’ve been told that I’m the type
Who likes to moan, complain and gripe
At things that and goings on
Traffic jams, saying ‘sCone’ or ‘scOne’,
To make assumptions, makes a fool out of you,
Or at least it would, if they weren’t all true.

I’ve been told I fit a stereotype
I’m Christian and British and often polite
And people think that just because
I’m English I like reserved applause
I drink tea perpetually, go to Church
Say things like ‘leave you in the lurch’
‘Ha!’ is what I’d love to say
But it seems I just am that way.

I’ve been told I fit a stereotype
I’m an English student, studying the archetypes
Assume I’m stuck in a rut, I’m in my prime!
You think I write dodgy poetry in my free time
Always got my head stuck in a book right?
Writing essays and examining texts all night?
Oh boy, if you only knew!
Well apparently you already do.
