Poet notes:  green basilisk lizard can run a short distance across the top of
Water, running so fast she stays on the surface.


Running on top of water?
Sure, I can.
No, you cannot!
Watch me.
I’ll be Dwammed!
The green basilisk puts out her hand for the five dollars.
Which is just heavy enough to drown her.
The chimpanzee smiles as his five dollars rises to the top.
Third time today.
