The sun doesn’t REALLY rise
nor does it REALLY set.
The moon doesn’t REALLY change its shape
as the days of a month go by.
So how many other things
aren’t as they seem
that we’ve been taught to believe?
Some maintain that global warming
isn’t what it’s claimed to be
and I can’t prove them wrong.
But others much brighter than I
suggest that we had best prepare
for what’s in store
and I tend to believe them more.
By the time man has overwhelming proof
I’ll be aloof and watching
from my pedestal in heaven —
or, will I, REALLY?
