It’s a cold, cold winters day
Is school cancelled today?
Children utter sighs of relief
As the television man debriefs
A day safe from the insane torment
Of the place to which we are sent
And nobody seems quite opposed
To hearing, “Fairfax County Schools, closed.”

And this is the message we bring
Telling our future not to sing
Taking away what makes them whole
Taking away their very soul
How can you call this education?
Don’t stand there and claim exculpation
Because you’re the one opposed
To hearing, “Fairfax County Schools, closed.”

The future minions smile and nod
The brainwashers speak and they applaud

And yes it is a very sad thing
But there’s no one left here to sing
Is this really best in the long run
For all our daughters and our sons?
God save us, if we live in a world
With a logic and a future so swirled
Where you’re the one opposed
To hearing, “Fairfax County Schools, closed.”
