Was it those people, with the big noses,
Those big hats, and the cauldron on the boil?
Don't you find it so bizarre, That a person
Might stuff a duck full of food, cut out the liver,
And call it foie gras!
What call we these people, with their discoveries now,
That are so widespread, and so often revered?
I call them scientists, I call them pioneers,
Although I think in their own time,
They might have been somewhat feared!
So this one goes to all those,
That dare to ask, and dare to put it to the test,
Lay aside your morals, and your ethics;
Please continue your experiments,
And to wash with the rest.
