In an episode that’s inspired by the word ‘Wildlife’ but very largely about other things, our hosts present three very rapidly written pieces. Ben’s is largely to annoy Charlie. Charlie’s is about a dog, but not about a dog. Matt’s sounds like Samuel Beckett, who he’s never heard of.
THIS WEEK'S PIECES
Wildlife Wildlife Wildlife
They’re not even that wild
But they can be frustrating to keep
My family kept one for fifteen years in a cold house.
We tried to teach him to shut the kitchen door,
Rewarding him with a little chewy treat
He wasn’t into it
He liked wet food, chasing cats and shagging other dogs
He never shut the door
Fallen on the ground
From doing too much.
