The Spoonbill Generator

How Many Such Openings Have We Squandered?

Astride a red-hot anvil       [Roland ]

In breeches spun from steel       [TG ]

The monks of Montezuma       [Roland ]

Have forged a molten wheel       [TG ]

How, now, to forge the axle       [Roland ]

From forty pounds of straw       [Chevalier ]

Without a sense of humour?       [Roland ]

The chances must be poor       [TG ]
