(sung to "Breakin' Up is Hard to Do" (70s soulful version) by Neil Sedaka)

They told me it's the present—
I can't conceive their view—
cause what they put as referent
is really déjà vu—

don't say that now is all that can be,
time-compressed ontology,
for what was now is now renewed—
and presentism's hard to prove—

the fact that then was now outright
but now exists in total blight--
so what was then is now frou-frou—
and presentism's hard to prove.

I say that presentism's hard to prove,
now is known, but known as improved
as over the truth of what's been
and added to eternal truth
of what is tenseless truth again

I state as true what they may spite
and misconstrue as tensed and right
but facts are facts, tenseless and true—
and presentism's hard to prove—

yes--presentism's so hard to prove—
to prove—
