The Spoonbill Generator

Seek the Shade, the Silence

In a garden of unrestful silence
Is an ancient man of stone [N]

For a thousand years has he watched [Anon.]

Unremarked, alone [Beefy]

One day a dove alighted there [Dassn't Say]

Upon his granite knee [Beefy]

The stony figure seemed to sigh [td]

With one, came two, then three [Kansas Sam]

By and by, there was a gathering [N]

The doves amassed for war [Kansas Sam]

And the symbols of peace did battle [Anon.]

A Manichean bore [Francine]

Or so the ancient thought until [Kansas Sam]

They commenced to defecate [Francine]

Now he silently must endure [Karin]

What symbols can create [Francine]
