In the future, centuries from now
There will be a certain guy.
He was once the best scientist,
But too quickly did time go by.
Robots, and flying cars
Were popular inventions
Bought by rich superstars.
What's all of this?
The old scientist wonders.
What happened to old ways?
When inventions came from blunders?
Only a few decades ago,
He had known everything.
Amateur scientists could only hope
To be taken under his wing.
Cloning sheep and cells,
Deep space exploration,
Finding cures for diseases,
Those all caused no frustration.
But now, in this new age,
Things are technologically advanced;
Computers and even household appliances
Have been completely enhanced.
The old scientist is behind the times,
And all of his colleagues know.
Whenever he asks stupid questions,
His ignorance will always show.
Then the others try
To help and explain,
But almost always
Are their efforts in vain.
The old guy who's behind the times
Doesn't want to know the newest experiment
On robots or people or animals,
Oh he most certainly didn't!
All of these new things,
The scientist would say,
Why don't we forget them
And go back to our old way?
The others would become annoyed,
And roll their eyes at him.
Didn't he know the new way
Was best for all of them?
Thus it was decided that the old man
Was a mockery to science, an idiot, a fool!
His ignorance of all the new things
Was most certainly not cool.
So, ladies and gentlemen,
Our moral for today
Is to keep up with the times
Or be led astray.
