The Spoonbill Generator

Filling the Proverbial Crannies

I try to Haiku [N]

But most of the time I fail [quasi]

Neither can I knit [F]

I tried limericks [quasi]

But they always came out wrong [N]

I'll stick to whacking [quasi]

I tried to stop, once [N]

But my brakes were not working [quasi]

So I crashed and burned [N]

Then I tried to fly [quasi]

But I wasn't born with wings [N]

Or a propeller [F]

I'll try to sleep now [N]

Hope bedbugs don't start biting [F]

Hope I have sweet dreams [N]

Cliches are hackneyed [F]

I avoid them like the plague [N]

A bird in the hand [F]

Is worth two in the [Grayman]

Broth (unspoiled by many cooks) [Ethetran]

Thicker than water [Grayman]

Blessed are the meek [Beefy ]

Blessed are the cheesemakers [(M. P.)]

For they shall find bries [Beefy ]

In the beginning [Kansas Sam]

Peter created Spoonbill [Karin]

And it was damned good [Ethetran]
