The Spoonbill Generator

Tin-openers Practising What?

Meander into Shropshire, in the old MG,       [Apsley ]

Like the ancient Romans, a hundred years BC       [Roland ]

Write you name in Latin but on your new PC       [F ]

But what mean I to Magdalene, or Magdalene to me?       [Beefy ]

Here we are at Ludlow, where I lost my PhD       [Roland ]

Gambling with a councilman who staked his MBE       [Beefy ]

Write your name in Latin, but you're not a VIP       [Roland ]

But what mean I to Doctor Fell, or Doctor Fell to me?       [Beefy ]

At the tower, mentioned by old Housman (A.E.)       [dkb ]

There dwelt a certain queerish lad, maybe (QED)       [F ]

Write your name in Latin, to ward off the HIV       [Roland ]

But what mean I to Aeschylus, or Aeschylus to me?       [Beefy ]
