SCIENCE IS A FAKE

SCIENCE IS A FAKE
(To the tune of “Anything Goes,” by Cole Porter)

In olden days all thought the world was flat.
When Science said “I’m sorry, that’s
a mistake.” They said
“Science is a fake.”

And Bible folks with resolution
swear Darwin and all his evolution’s
a flake, saying
“Science is a fake.”

You want to be blind today?
Close your mind today?
Say forsooth today
to the truth today?
While the facts today
get the ax today
for whose financial sake?

And so I dare to try to rhyme it.
With what we are doing to the climate
we’ll soon all bake.
But, “Science is a fake.”

Reprise

New parents forego vaccinations.
As measles is spreading ‘cross the nations.
Give me a break.   Don’t say
“Science is a fake”

You want to be blind today?
Close their mind today?
Say forsooth today
to the truth today?
While the facts today
get the ax today
for whose financial sake?

And so I dare to try to rhyme it.
With what we are doing to the climate
we’ll soon all bake.
But, “Science is a fake.”
