The Spoonbill Generator

Only Once Is More Than Twice Times Two

Give me the pen and invisible ink, and I'll write my life story for you [(trad)]

It won't take me nearly as long as you think, and I've got nothing better to do [Beefy ]

If I were old, let's say forescore and ten, it would maybe require half a page [Roland]

But to sum up my life until now from back then is a snip for a man of my age [Beefy ]

The poultry I ate is what made me, at six, more a man than most men of sixteen [asdf]

& soon I was up to the species of tricks that put rather a strain on the spleen [loaf]

From then until now is a bit of a blur, but I seem to recall sundry bars [Beefy ]

I'm not really known as a drink connoisseur, but I do like to sink a few jars [Grayman]

Envoi [(trad)]

Every newbie values ongoing intoxication [asdf]
