I saw the Headroom punchline coming early on because I had also heard the joke in the form of a paraplegic olympic swimming race scenario. I liked performance anxiety but I think it was mercifully short - couldn't really have stomached much more of that one. However, out of the three I liked Chi the...

I thought the voice work was the best thing about it - It started out amazingly consistent posh southern english and stayed that way for a long time and then it took a train ride north via peterborough to Yorkshire, Cheshire and Lancashire. This last is no bad thing, by the way. The story was okay, ...

This last isn't a criticism as I don't think the ending harmed the piece. As to what defines a poem, the answer you get to that question varies depen...
