The Spoonbill Generator

Zeppelin Without Page

Said Benk, the lusty bear,       [Roland ]

To Ork, the silent owl       [TG ]

There cannot be a harder way       [Roland ]

To emphasise a vowel       [TG ]

Yet, should it come to court       [Roland ]

You'll readily admit       [TG ]

That when an 'a' is short       [Roland ]

It matters not a whit       [TG ]

If palate cleaves to tongue       [Roland ]

And leaves the song unsung       [TG ]

With aspirates engorged       [Roland ]

For truth cannot be forged       [P ]

Envoi       [Roland ]

If you'd avoid conviction       [TG ]

And any kind of friction       [Roland ]

Be painstaking with diction       [TG ]
