The Spoonbill Generator

Our Northern Weeds Notwithstanding

Outside the gates of Swindon [Apsley]

The heroes of the Kingdom [fester]

Interlocked in combat gear [Apsley]

Battle for a wombat's ear [fester]

Made by the living dead [Apsley]

The Wiltshire ghouls and vampires [fester]

Lit a hundred camp-fires [Apsley]

Immolating rust and stone [Roland]

Burning surplus dust and bones [Fatty]

On which their kin have fed [Roland]

Such is the wisdom of the East [Apsley]

As it's told by Wildebeest [fester]

Who whisper truths from sire to son [Apsley]

And tell their strange desires to nuns [fester]

Who seldom stay unwed [Roland]

The greater wisdom of the West [P]

From Old Bengal to Budapest [Roland]

Is spurned by son and sire alike [dkb]

And single nuns who hire a bike [fester]

Instead of an old shed [Apsley]
