The Spoonbill Generator

Situtationist Funeral

Pallbearers of uneven height [Ethetran]

Mourners giggle at the sight [Beefy ]

And snigger at the rocking bier [Grayman]

The curate stands beside the grave [Beefy ]

It looks like he forgot to shave [Grayman]

Although there's soap all round his ear [Roland]

In mourning black, a fleeting crow [Beefy ]

Bisects the evening indigo [loaf]

And lands upon the widow's shoulder [N]

To grimace through the falling sleet [Roland]

More doleful than a parakeet [F]

And fifty times more colder [Loaf]

The tomb parades an epitaph [N]

An obscure reference to Falstaff [F]

Intended by the parted to bemuse [N]

Those readers who are literate [F]

Or thespians inveterate [Grayman]

But mystify all others who peruse [Beefy ]

A fitting grey and dismal day [Grayman]

To send our comrade on his way [Beefy ]

He'll itch, itch, itch, yet never scratch [asdf]

And as we part for tea and cake [loaf]

We hope that he will never wake [F]

Whom carrion crows despatch [loaf]
