Sources Matter

Flu in California
Measles at O’hare
Trump and company
Causing stupidity everywhere

Science doesn’t matter?
Who are you to say?
For those who know better
Know truth’s the only way

If you dumb down 
All the schools
Pretend facts don’t matter
What do you get? A nation of fools

Doctors know their business
Engineers and teachers too
If you can’t begin to understand that
Perhaps you should have listened in school

The best thing you can learn
The thing that helps the most
Isn’t memorization — it’s verification
As teacher used to say: Always check the source
