Carbon Dating

Are we not in the first years of dating
Does a boy know how to handle
While his hands are yet fumbling
Didn't he promise to make her honest
And the next hour change his mind

This is the scientist's suicide
Carbon dating

i heard rumors of a set date
And while the rumor was yet being spread
It was proclaimed the truth

And this truth was spread all throughout
And by the evening another rumor was brewed

And the next day of school yeasterday's
Truth was a lie
You see how school and scientists lack
The knowledge of basic english

A new date is set
Thou the date is different from yesterday's
Today it is printed and pressed
Insomuch that children are pronounced dunce
If they do not subscribe the new date on a a test

The scientist is school's hero
Once it was God
Once children were caresed by the truth

But school has wanted a divorce
And now our children are handled by scientist boy's
Fumbling hands

And they ask

Why is our nation broken?
