Collective Mind/Guilded Monuments
by Ross Clark
A brief of lawyers, a last supper of jurors,
A busyness of teachers, a mosh of juveniles,
A band of censors, a drone of politicians,
A rubble of vandals, a tag of graffitists,
A paranoia of poets.
A cunning of stuntmen, a guild of jewellers,
A clutch of shop-lifters, a round-up of police,
A posse of rappers, a current of conductors,
A drove of chauffeurs, a shuffle of deros,
A conspiracy of poets.
A precision of pilots, a composting of gardeners,
A squall of meteorologists, a hive of gossips,
A library of bookmakers, a setting of chefs,
A groundswell of undertakers, a ruck of footballers,
A stanza of poets.
A paradigm of philosophers, an amalgam of dentists,
A pack of bush-walkers, a fringe of strippers,
A palette of painters, a swab of veterinarians,
A stink of fisherman, a register of shopkeepers,
A choiring of poets.
A theatre of nurses, a gallon of plumbers,
A fasting of jockeys, a chaos of teenagers,
A clef of musicians, a flock of models,
A collection of preachers, a suture of surgeons,
A kenning of poets.
A travail of tourists, a subsidy of farmers,
An arrangement of florists, a sweep of cleaners,
A discord of critics, an expression of actors,
A painstaking of forgers, a script of pharmacists,
A challenge of poets.
A heritage of antique-dealers, a denial of nuns,
An opinion of taxi-drivers, a bottom-line of accountants,
An atomic number of scientists, a nest of bird-breeders,
A dumpster of garbologists, a pride of hairdressers,
A respiration of poets.
A chapter of novelists, a flight of refugees,
A scale of dieticians, a gathering of pollsters,
A stand of protesters, a club of bouncers,
A grid of surveyors, a rank of officers,
A solace of poets.
Some more fictitious collectives.
Collective nouns for animals, birds etc.

Are you aware that there is a book which lists "nouns of multitude?" It's title is "An Exaltation of Larks."
