The Spoonbill Generator

One Cat for Every Lear

How blithely do the flivvers fly [Anon.]

Through-out the trembling sky [N]

Discombobulating eagles [F]

And falling in my pie [N]

How weirdly do the dervishes [F]

Mingle with the purling fishes [Anon.]

Transmigrating anchovies [dok]

Never granting wishes [Anon.]

How slyly do the oysters creep [Beefy ]

Across my plate. And then they leap [Dassn't Say]

Opalescent dinnertime [dok]

Still barely free of sea-borne grime [Ethetran]

How ruefully the gorgons sing [F]

Surrounded by a stony ring [Beefy ]

Such medusan strategies [F]

Are limn'd in works of Chaterjee's [Beefy ]

How glumly do the salmon flop [F]

On sheets of silk - what is this shop? [Beefy ]

Emporium Amphigory [dok]

This nonsense must now stop! [N]
