The Spoonbill Generator

Mermaids Sighing Affidavits

Harold Pinter, author of Betrayal,       [Apsley ]

Sat among the coals as dusk came down       [Roland ]

Wishing that his boy, George, could be male       [Arnold the Sly Ape ]

And creased his placid visage in a frown       [Roland ]

If only he could once again be hale       [Arnold the Sly Ape ]

And drain the Coptic cup, come wind or storm       [Roland ]

Yet with the wind of passion in his sail       [Ethetran ]

Astride his Muse, in semi-human form       [Roland ]
