The Spoonbill Generator

Subtle, Said the Maggots

Spent moons bestrew th'empyrean [Surlaw]

Where swains besmirch their valour [Apsley]

A welkin of delirium [Surlaw]

Painted o'er with valium [Apsley]

To camouflage their pallor [Surlaw]

This rhyme is but a play on words [Apsley]

Where fools betray their ardour [Surlaw]

In search of kisses and champagne [Apsley]

And some trick to remove the stain [Surlaw]

That once was made by passing birds [Apsley]
