The Spoonbill Generator

Once Lithuania, Once

In a cave, on a mountain so high [Beefy ]

I cursed all the birds of the sky [loaf]

'Cause the wings I had wrought [Kansas Sam]

Had never so cheaply been bought [Apsley]

And thus, when I sought to descend [Roland]

From the odious sonnets I'd penned, [Apsley]

I shouted two lines [loaf]

To three porcupines: [Apsley]

(And stopped when I got to the end) [loaf]

Poor Beefy's good pome has been wrecked [asdf]

(What did you expect?) [loaf]

Beneath the grapefruit moon we would roll in the grass [Nigel Sly]

Alas! [asdf]

The ring-tailed pigeons fondle their own plumage, [Apsley]

And moved from nest to maisonette to gain the extra roomage [Ethetran]

But quickly became bored with all the coo and billing [Beefy ]

To say nothing of the indiscriminate killing [loaf]
