The Spoonbill Generator

Departures In Disarray

Sophistry, for those who wait,       [Apsley ]

Obliges us to ask       [Roland ]

The quantum moment of a weight       [Apsley ]

That's flung into the brook in spate       [Roland ]

No ordinary task!       [Beefy ]

For science, in its blindfold dark       [Roland ]

Disdains our petty laws       [Beefy ]

Small wonder, when we miss the mark       [Roland ]

The universe seems drear and stark       [F ]

And heedless of our cause       [Beefy ]

Yet Speculation holds the key       [Roland ]

That will unlock the stars       [Beefy ]

And so shine forth, to you and me,       [Apsley ]

And launch us on a mystic spree       [F ]

Beyond restraining bars       [Apsley ]
