Are Fish Getting High on Cocaine?

Whilst mankind does litter the globe,

There’s something that we need to probe:

As yuppies flush the toilet chain,

Are fish getting high on cocaine?

 

As drugs of abuse start to rise,

It’s not just users that have highs.

With every speedball down the drain,

Are fish getting high on cocaine?

 

A crazy night out on the blow,

Means rivers wake up to fresh snow

No longer washed out in the rain,

Are fish getting high on cocaine?

 

Because of an evening of vice,

The water is full up of ice,

They surface again and again,

Are fish getting high on cocaine?

 

Downstream from where it is discharged

The substances are still enlarged,

Poor wastewater plants are to blame;

Are fish getting high on cocaine?

 

But humans must also look out,

For drugs coming out of the spout.

Read you and me in this refrain:

Are fish getting high on cocaine?

Are fish getting high on cocaine?
Are fish getting high on cocaine?

This is a Kyrielle, written about a piece of recent research that has shown drugs to be found in surface waters in Canadian rivers.
