    stats:

    possible poem variations
    = 14 conjunctions * 207 pronouns/names * 584 verbs * 362 adjectives * 100 colour names * 1258 nouns * 16 lines
    = 1,233,162,820,915,200 = 1.2 quadrillion [1233 million million or 1.2 million billion] variations

    It would take approx. 2,466,325,642 [2.5 billion] years to read them all, reading 24 hours a day

    possible colour poem variations
    = poem variations * 16777216 colours
    = 1,233,162,820,915,200 * 16,777,216
    = 20,689,039,009,663,628,083,200 variations
    = 20 sextillion variations [70 sextillion stars in the known universe]

    It would take approx. 41,378,078,022,172,672 years [41 quadrillion years] to see them all, reading 24 hours a day
