HCE received a lot of high-quality submissions for The Brutal Issue – sadly, too many to fit inside the magazine! So we offered some of our shortlisted contributors the chance to be published on our website.
Keep an eye on our social media for more great writing like this, in the run up to the release of The Brutal Issue…
I Drink Therefore I Harm
I could murder a cup of tea.
I could annihilate a coffee.
I could totally evaporate
By boiling it
I could lay into a gin.
I could instil fear in a beer.
I could show a piña colada who’s harder.
I could make a glass of red
I could make a glass of milk
I could make a cup of hurt chocolate.
I could express serious ill feeling
Towards a cup of Darjeeling.
I could cause a cup of Earl Grey
I could do an enormous amount of wrong
To a cup of Lapsang souchong.
