“Venice canal patch turns fluorescent green. …
Speculation is rife as to what might have caused the water…
to change colour.”
Did Shrek let out a mighty sneeze?
Do submarines leak antifreeze?
Is Suess’s oobleck on the loose?
Perhaps a truck spilled kiwi juice?
Did someone say it grows in size?
And does it photosynthesize?
I have these same thoughts every year
While drinking my St. Patrick’s beer.
