The Lyrics

On yesterday's "A Comment on Intelligent Design" parody, I used the word "farrago" in my intro. John Barry challenged me to do a parody with the word in - I hope 16 times over is enough :-)
Isn't it just some farrago?
The confused hotchpotch of thought that is Intelligent Design
And it's such a dumb farrago
Ev'ry ill-conceiv├Ęd argument descending into farce
And yet there are still some
Who want its inclusion in science class

Though they say it's science, farrago
Every ID-type who's in it hails from Christianity
And it's such a giant farrago
There are articles in papers and a magazine or two
They should be ashamed because
They never publish anything for peer review

It is nothing but a pile of shite
Yes it's a right farrago
Of misguided thoughts why we exist
Creationist farrago
Though they sue to get it into schools
There's no defence
'Cause they overlook the evidence
In such a dense farrago

Should we teach both sides' farrago?
Should our kids be like George Bush and try to keep an open mind?
But the other side's farrago
Thinks that pointing out some missing links in fossil evidence
Ergo means the only option
Is creationism hid behind an ID pretense

There's some people there who ain't that bright
They spout a right farrago
Of misguided tripe, I have to say
That it's just a farrago
Though they're entitled to their views
They ain't a threat
Won't convince people with half a brain
With their insane farrago

Intellectually dishonest, trite
Yes it's a right farrago
They are being disingenuous
They lie to us, farrago
For misleading folks, there's no excuse
Science, it ain't
Time to think about the evidence
Ignore their dense farrago
So do I care if I give offence
Slating their dense farrago?
