The Spoonbill Generator

Towards Our Preordained Tenements

As with so many medicinal jokes       [Roland ]

The punchline is somewhat obscure       [Beefy ]

Buf, if you'll forgive me cutting down oaks,       [Apsley ]

And scattering acorns all over the Ruhr       [Roland ]

In a fanciful mess, I'll tell you some möre       [Apsley ]

Which the houseman has hailed as a hoax:       [Roland ]

There was this doctor who misdiagnosed       [F ]

Post-partum depression as scurvy       [Beefy ]

And all of mis patients metamorphosed       [Apsley ]

Into dinosaurs, making him nervy       [Beefy ]

And so, just as Tintin once mentioned to Hervé       [Roland ]

"It's best that this case remain closed"       [Beefy ]
