Ode to a badger

Howard, creator of Brockley's comic hero, Badger, has asked various people to contribute to an online advent calendar celebrating the life of this character. Our effort was a short poem.

We've always liked to imagine him has Brockley Central's muse, so we swapped him with Ted Hughes' Thought Fox and swapped the forest for Brockley.

The original poem is about the author's own writing process, but given that Brockley Central is a collaborative effort between the editors and the users, we've tried to inject a little more ambiguity in to the poem, about who is actually doing the writing. Is it Brockley Nick or anonymous? Maybe, in keeping, with BC tradition, we should have changed the "I" to "We". We couldn't decide.

You can read the result here, if you so wish.
