The Spoonbill Generator

Geometry Crawls Nightwards

Their shop lay in a triangle [Roland]

Their feet danced in the square [TG]

While underneath the Pentagon [Roland]

The aproned madmen stared [Apsley]

Bewildered in the basement [Roland]

Stunbling up the stairs [Curt!]

The fog on the mezzanine [KD]

The Masons at their prayers [Roland]

Invoking God's mysterious name [Apsley]

The pyramid, the eye [loaf]

The strange obsession with a skull [Apsley]

And windows closed on high [loaf]

They greet each other with a sign [Apsley]

That bears a lovely name [Mystico]

Then they mutter 'Shibboleth' [Apsley]

Else Jephthah has them slain [fester]
