The ozone and peroxide in the air,
enriched in isotope O seventeen,
Pass on the spike reaction products bear;
This stratospheric label’s not marine.
If limestone sulphate bears this airy mark
deceitful proxy! geosaboteur!
Thus reconstructed oceans fade to dark,
Eliminating tales that never were.
A lithologic memory withdrawn,
Built on assumptions hereby disallowed
The dreams of times hypothesized are gone
Mere fanciful illusions, disavowed.
A lab revealed the havoc smog did wreak
Perhaps they need a microbeam technique.
