The Spoonbill Generator

That's That Over With

In the beginning was the Herd: [E Greejius]

Beginning with K is just absurd [Apsley]

When all is said and done, it's just a word [TG]

About which we can prattle [Grayman]

Of cowboys and of cattle [Hamish]

But what we really want's a great big rattle [Apsley]

At the start of it all, a bird [Hamish]

Dipped its bill in the waters and stirred [dkb]

And suddenly all kinds of things occurred [Hamish]

Just at once the scent of Oz [Apsley]

Made my nose perk up because [Hamish]

It was filled with dust and choked with fuzz [Apsley]

It's genesis was rather blurred [Hamish]

verging on the most absurd [ellie]

- I heard it occurred when the third bird purred... [Hamish]

The stream at once was bright and dim [Apsley]

A peril both to life and limb [TG]

Where stones and fish alike would skim [Apsley]

It started with a snorting cough [Hamish]

Got up and turned the TV off [Grayman]

Too many hats that I should doff! [Apsley]

I tried to find its hidden scent [TG]

But suddenly i had no nose [john charles wilson]

And didn't smell the rhyme was bent [ellie]

On going somewhere different... [fester]
