Art by Paul Prescott


Some philosophers are women, yeah
And they write papers too.
Sometimes they send their papers
Out to journals for review.
When blinded papers hit your desk
You don’t know who’s a-who,
When you assume, you make an ass
Of pretty much just you.

It’s sometimes kind of funny
But it happens quite a lot,
And lots of us would really
Just prefer if it did not.
