The Spoonbill Generator

Pork Beam Custard

Palpably encoded in the Turing mould [Apsley]

Was the beat of a thin steel drum [loaf]

Palpably eroded by the tundric cold [Beefy]

Were the Tantric stains of a plum [loaf]

No wonder that we all felt tired and old [Beefy]

Which is tantamount to glum [loaf]

Secretly enfolded in the Turin shroud [erie]

Was the cast of a golden doubloon [Beefy]

Secretly ensorcelled by the tourist crowd [Kansas Sam]

Was the statue of Thoth the baboon [Beefy]

No wonder that we all felt bent and bowed [loaf]

Which is mandat'ry in Rangoon [Beefy]

Envoi: [loaf]

Give me a round of applause [Apsley]

And I shall pretend it's not yours [loaf]
