Professor Drew was known to hold
With certainty both firm and bold
That this, our world, is far too old
For even God to have had us told
The story of humanity.
Professor Drew was heard to say
Accounts that change from day to day,
Of how billions and billions of years away
This world was begun and was bound to decay.
He, who stands staring in utter dismay
At one rain shower in the month of May,
Oh what conceit! What vanity!
And now Professor Drew,
No one is sure of anything he knew;
And there’s no real difference
between false and true!
So what does it matter with that in view
How many aeons we have gone through
If one plus one need not make two?
Professor, that will do for you.
You are tampering with sanity.
