Poof! The Vaccine Lawsuit
For the occasion, I've composed a new version of "Puff, the Magic Dragon" by Peter, Paul & Mary. Enjoy.
Poof! The vaccine lawsuit
Lacked all sanity
Deluded schemers dreamed of loot
In the land of fantasy.
Without a shred of science
The rascals spewed out guff
Tied up with strings and sealing wax
And other fancy stuff.
Together they would travel
In search of easy marks
To conferences and parent groups
Just like so many sharks.
Would bow to their brash claims
Publishers would print their trash
When the editors saw their names.
Some urban legends live forever
But not so greedy quacks
Whose marketing plan was nothing but
Junk science and nasty attacks.
One fine day it happened
The court knew that they lied
And Poof! The vaccine lawsuit
Shriveled up and died.
With no more easy targets
To cheat and abuse
The quacks no longer could invent
False epidemic news.
Now known for what they were
Their lies could not shock
So all those slimy quacks just
Crawled back under their rock.
