The Spoonbill Generator

Cutlery At Noon

Silent in the dinner-queue       [Roland ]

Artisans sketch nudes       [Apsley ]

While the little children do       [Roland ]

What little children will       [Beefy ]

(None of them are prudes)       [Roland ]

Until it makes them ill       [Beefy ]

When the matron tiptoes by       [Roland ]

Orphans hide their heads       [Beefy ]

While the little children sigh       [Roland ]

As little children can       [Beefy ]

Underneath each other's beds       [Roland ]

Until they form a plan       [Beefy ]

Suddenly, they spring the trap       [Roland ]

The borscht has stained its mark       [Kansas Sam ]

While the little children scrap       [Roland ]

(Aren't little children sweet?)       [Beefy ]

What seemed a merry lark       [Roland ]

Must now seem dire defeat       [Beefy ]

Envoi       [Roland ]

Little children, truth to tell       [Beefy ]

Understand the world too well       [Roland ]
