The Spoonbill Generator

Courage, John!

Ray Harryhausen, in the days before attaining fame, [Ethetran]

Would make intricately articulated model hamsters [snood]

Inscribing on each one a simulacrum of his name [Beefy]

And doing much the same with model lambsters [Dassn't Say]

May Lingenfelter, in the days before the scandal hit [F]

Took great care to treat each goat alike [Mung]

She fed them velvetleafs - and quite a bit [Anon.]

She even tought the baby one how to ride a bike. [Rachel D'Avino]

Big John Jones, in the time when days were getting shorter [Stefano D. Cameras]

Was courteous to squirrels passing by [dok]

Though this poem makes not a bit of sense velvet leaves seem better than death [Aimee M. ]

Just ask Beth [Anon.]

Go on! You know you oughtta [Grayman]

Life it but only short and you must live it to the most [elizabeth Wilkinson]
