DR ATLANTIS

Dr Atlantis Had an hypothesis,

Thought that all people Were basically good.

Tried to be good, And kind and considerate.

Just as he thought All people should.

Dr Atlantis Funny old man.

Dr Atlantis Had an hypothesis

Took it for walkies Each day by the sea.

Enemy tribes Came and attacked them.

Drove him away And tore it to bits.

*

Dr Atlantis Came back to bury it.

Cried for it nightly And prayed for its soul.

Buried it deep Where no jackals could find it.

Buried it deep In the sands of the Lethe,

Where no one could see And no terror tongues tell.

*

The enemy tribes Came back to get it.

Back with a blessing

Bought from a bishop For praising a psalm.

Dug up the body, Stuck it together

With Bostik and horse bones.

Pushed in a pin And raised it up high.

*

People cried out at This shock resurrection.

Ran to it quickly And clung to its side.

Atlantis was stigmatized, Exorcised, ostracized,

But Dr Atlantis Said not a word.

Dr Atlantis, Funny old man.

Dr Hypothesis Had an Atlantis,

Thought it was somewhere In Buttermere Lake.

People soon followed And rushed out to find it.

With pick and with shovel.

Pulled out the plug And the water ran out.

Dr Atlantis Had an hypothesis,

Thought that all people Were basically good.

Tried to be good And kind and considerate.

Just as he thought All people should.

Dr Atlantis funny old man.
