The Spoonbill Generator


Awake! for midnight at the witching hour [Nym]

Is when all poetasters do conspire [Francine]

and in their quest the gigabytes devour [Karin]

A line, a moue, a mute desire [Francine]

The strangest thing, where is my pillow [Nym]

Not in the bed nor on my pyre [Francine]

sweet thoughts throughout my brain do billow [Karin]

Alas, I feed an endless fire [Francine]

of unrequited and soulful desire [Karin]

And may this travesty expire [Francine]
