The Spoonbill Generator

A Challenge To The Juvenile

How many times have you started a line [F]

And forgotten just how it should end [N]

And then you must deal with what others have wrought [F]

Instead of the line you intend [Grayman]

How many times have you wanted to curse [F]

But forgotten the words to employ [N]

And then your resentments you quietly nurse [F]

As you sound like a hobbledehoy [Ethetran]

How many times have you just been too slow [Beefy ]

To find the right words and right rhyme [Padfoot]

Or been having a life (later, Kids: gotta go!) [Kansas Sam]

Visiting here from time to time [smrtypnts]

How many times have you goofed just a bit [Kansas Sam]

And trying to remove foot from mouth [smrtypnts]

Found that you've manged to deepen the pit [Beefy ]

And sent a fine pome further south [Kansas Sam]

For all of those times, for all those regrets [Beefy ]

We have but a smile of displeasury [Kansas Sam]

To access the record of Spoonbill debts [Karin]

Go look for yourself in the Treasury [N]
