The Spoonbill Generator

Within No Feasible Hemisphere

Why, when death inheres within the very egg [E Greejius]

Do we all rate the omelette so high? [Roland]

Why, when clearly we should pull the other leg [TG]

Do we kowtow to critics, hopping by? [Roland]

We can't save our own bacon; we never made the grade. [E Greejius]

We ham it up so gamely, yet pourquoi? [Roland]

They of our kidney think "By God, we've got it made"; [E Greejius]

Yet which of us can fathom what we are? [Roland]

The rivalled sonnet worms its merry way [The Agent Apsley]

To read between the lions, who should try? [Roland]

For, after all, if night must follow day, [TG]

Cart has to follow horse. Thank you. Goodbye. [E Greejius]
