The Spoonbill Generator

It Isn't Often Oatmeal

In his book, 'The Uranium Fanfare',

A satire on the wicked Scots,

Xenophon omits to mention

Many of their heinous plots

Yet he dwells, in pointless detail

On the follies of the French

Hardly mentions Rob Roy's deeds,

Despatching many a wicked wench

To punishment too hard to bear

Among the Caribbean fops

To pass their grey declining years

Knee-deep in rotten crops

He's scathing in his criticism

Lax in his research

Stubborn in his prejudice

For pudding in the verse!
