When I heard the learn'd cognitive scientist (an homage)

When I heard the learn'd cognitive scientist,
When the studies, the implicit bias metrics were ranged before me,
When the cutting edge of evolutionary psychology was brandished in the seminar,
How soon unaccountable I became weary and bored,
And wandered off into the sports bar across the street,
Where between quaffs of PBR I saw on NBC
A white man being lauded for team-play prowess, his violations forgotten,
And a black man being raked o'er the coals for his performance in the bowl game.
