Neu! Boots Are Made For Walking DAY THIRTY-TWO – Return Of The Squibs

Tim Wells

Richard Dawkins on a Zero Hours Contract

Didn’t use to believe,
but now I do firmly.
If there were no G-d
I wouldn’t be so god-forsaken.

(with a raise of the glass to Aristophanes: The Knights)



Claire Collison

Herne Hill Oxfam

You get me to hold your dog,
digging into your bag
for the receipt for something

that doesn’t fit. Sometimes,
you say, the dog licking my face,
you buy stuff, wear it once, then

donate again. You’ve probably,
you say, paid for a goat by now,
at least – or a well.
