The Spoonbill Generator

Pontifex Caught Under Bridges

Though drowning in the vat, I can [Roland]

Pontificate as well as e'er I could [P]

The Po, perchance, has not been crossed in vain [TG]

In vengeance now it floods the plain [P]

Aye, there's the Rubicon ... [Roland]

To cap it all, in Washington [TG]

The Ovaltine is off [Roland]

The Po, to Mac, is not what once he knew [TG]

The Pentagram is gone, but who [P]

Is left to soldier on? [Roland]

In Paris, in a turd I fell [TG]

Before I went in Seine [Roland]

The popery smelt sweeter for the sin [TG]

And left the bank quite drunk on gin [P]

The ruin of Mammon [Roland]
