DNA to the Rescue

DNA to the Rescue

 

By Elton Camp



Way back in the days when I was young

A man accused of “bastardy” was hung



Not that rope was put around his neck

But the girl was always believed, by heck



Money, the guy might as well shell out

He was thought guilty without any doubt



Juries just couldn’t see any reason why

About such a thing, any girl would lie



But today, to accuse a teenage heartthrob

Is no loner carte blanche the boy to rob



Accurate paternity tests by the use of DNA

Will allow the innocent guy to say, “Nay.”



The girl who this fact doesn’t comprehend

Is likely to face a slander lawsuit at the end



Any fellow wrongly accused in such a way

Certainly deserves to have, in court, his day
