A friend of mine introduced me this riddle in a game some time ago in prose and I decided to try to make it in verse. It's a well known one. I hope it's a bit easier than the original because I was allowed some probing questions.
I enter the bedroom and immediately see
Romeo and Juliet dead, lying on the floor
Water and shattered glass all around me
What else am I supposed to look for?
Evidence and a culprit, my partner agrees
Everything clean but the garden backdoor
Some wet footprints towards the tree
There, staring at us, the perpetrator!
The crime wasn't that hard to foresee
The predator has done similar before
Poor couple, drowned to some degree
A bit confusing that sounds in the report
My dear and old friends ceased to be
An aquarium was their doom and my sore
Black story... What just happened here?
In just one phrase, simple, no more.
