The Spoonbill Generator

Tea-room Trumpery

Catachresis in the crypt       [Apsley ]

Where the solecism slipped       [Roland ]

And, unseen, a main verb hid       [Apsley ]

In some rotting coffin-lid       [Surlaw ]

With redundant verbiage       [Apsley ]

Cooling gently in the fridge       [Beefy ]

While chiasmus moves across       [Roland ]

Outside of pleonastic dross       [Beefy ]

To parse a rather purple patch       [Roland ]

Befitting of a bandersnatch       [Beefy ]
