The Spoonbill Generator

Rescued From My Defects

There upon the ceiling, in a pattern rich and rare, [dkb]

A most unpleasant fresco, laid out in human hair [loaf]

Depicting with elan, one might even say panache [dkb]

A bear entirely bearded, a mouse with a moustache [Roland]

An arial perspective achieved in cama´eu [Stacy Alexander]

Wholly lacking merit, designed to trompe les yeux [loaf]

A frottage most offensive [Stacy Alexander]

Its line all split in two [loaf]

Tells you that it's expensive [fester]

but then nothing else would do. [E Roark]

Thus, among the cobwebs, beyond the chandelier [Roland]

Repulsive little mezzotints depicting Chanticleer [E Greejius]

Who feathers every chicken, who fathers every hen [Roland]

Who keeps his randy end up by guzzling Neurophen; [E Greejius]

An arial perspective, bereft of art or grace [Roland]

A Tracey Emin knickerfest? I must be off my face! [E Greejius]

Those scabs are not appealing! Those stains aren't margarine! [Roland]

But hey, you guys - how groovy! Esoteric but obscene! [E Greejius]
