The Spoonbill Generator

Storm the Language Barricade!

Latin died and Gaelic's not so well [Dassn't Say]

But English has become the lingua franca of the world [Beefy]

While Latin's corpus delicti lies unstudied [Kansas Sam]

The Cornish tongue's new banner is about to be unfurled [Beefy]

The Bard's fine works now sport a certain brogue [Kansas Sam]

When Finney plays Macbeth or Brosnan Hamlet [Dassn't Say]

The eldest James Bond's accent's now in vogue [Kansas Sam]

Along with his kilt and his tam. Let [Dassn't Say]

Song ring out 'cross ev'ry loch and glen [Kansas Sam]

And cwm and mull and combe and fen and dell [N]

Ah, Brian Boru and Braveheart, come again [F]

Fore'er for the highlands I'll wistfully yen [Anon.]
