The Spoonbill Generator

My Finite and Fastidious Friend

This time, I shall follow my leader [loaf]

This time, I shall not be alone [Beefy]

Such are the visions, sketched for myself [Apsley]

This time, I will obey his orders [fester]

This time, I shall gibber and moan [Roland]

Mine are the destinies, etched on my pelf [Apsley]

This time, I will bend over backwards [dan]

This time? I hardly think so! [Apsley]

No, I remain here, stuck on the shelf [Beefy]

Last time? - I can barely remember [Apsley]

Last time, I gave up at the start [fester]

Beckettt behind me, and Kafka ahead [Apsley]

Last time, I was summoned by angels [Beefy]

Last time, I quickly lost heart [fester]

To behold highest heaven left me dead [Apsley]

Last time, I thought this time would be next time [dan]

Last time, I decided to go [Apsley]

Looking for visions, like the man said [Anon.]
