Sloth Pitches his Reality TV Show – by Brett Evans

 

Sloth shits once a week.
He reasons there has to be a series in that.
And if the focus be that one turd, Sloth
insists there’s no space for those two
Geordie gobshites or that egotistical
Pied Piper for pouting teens twat
whose haircut not even the Amazonian
rain could run off.

Monday to Friday, Sloth will snooze and scratch,
narration will describe his unique ecosystem
to the disinterest of viewers in the build up to Saturday’s
equivalent of entertainment’s colonoscopy
when Sloth is sure he can cash in on the phone votes
– in or out?

 

 

 

 

Brett Evans lives, writes, and drinks in his native north Wales. He is co-editor of Prole  and his debut poetry pamphlet The Devil’s Tattoo was published by Indigo Dreams in 2015, available here.
