The Spoonbill Generator

Attempted Assassination During Evensong

Rather than conferring shame [Roland]

In classic red-top style [Beefy ]

We, ourselves, shall take the blame [Kansas Sam]

And spoil the tabloids' little game [Beefy ]

With acres of denial [Roland]

But take the blame for what? [Apsley]

When editors decide [Roland]

The nation's choice of hate, [Apsley]

Screw rhyme schemes and coherence! [F]

Paddles he with orange the. [N]

Wibble. [Grayman]

Rather than conferring shame [(trad)]

With rash knee-jerk reaction [Ethetran]

We, whom journos love to name, [Beefy ]

Eschewing fortune, shunning fame [Roland]

Will boycott every faction [Beefy ]

When Our subscription needs renewal [Kansas Sam]

In the news-stands we find fuel [Apsley]

Agin the broadsheets bland [loaf]

We'll take a saucy stand [Beefy ]

And cast a-down the cruel [loaf]
