The Spoonbill Generator

The Shark-infested Handbag

Betrayed by movements in the dark       [Roland ]

I sensed she was another shark       [Apsley ]

And blind with lust for blood       [Roland ]

To wallow in as mud       [Apsley ]

For flesh to rend with razor teeth       [Chevalier ]

For tenderloin as bought from Leith       [Apsley ]

And nipped before the bud       [Roland ]

And so I made to leave her bed       [Apsley ]

And sensed the pillows' turning red       [Roland ]

So blind with lust for gore       [Apsley ]

To bathe in, as before       [Roland ]

I got to know her, on a bus,       [Apsley ]

That never left the terminus       [Roland ]

As we made love the more       [Apsley ]

And then! Oh, solemn interlude       [Roland ]

As we were spotted in the nude       [Apsley ]

By one whose taste for rotting meat       [Chevalier ]

And savour for a winding sheet       [Roland ]

Make friends for life       [Apsley ]

Envoi       [Roland ]

If a mate you'll take to bed,       [Apsley ]

Let your lust be hallowèd       [Roland ]

Else all your efforts be in vain       [Chevalier ]

And you shall have to start again       [Roland ]
