The Spoonbill Generator

My Third Empire

In this haystack, L. P. Hartley       [Apsley ]

Author of The Gobi Twin       [Roland ]

And wont to dress somewhat smartly       [Apsley ]

Gave his life to sin       [Roland ]

Not a moment too soon       [Apsley ]

Before a maiden moon       [Roland ]

Full of lusty, urgent wishes       [Apsley ]

Strong, ungainly appetites       [Roland ]

That don't resist many dishes       [Apsley ]

He lingered there by nights       [Roland ]

Not a moment too late       [Chevalier ]

To snare a likely mate       [Roland ]
