About the prompt
I have chosen wildlife as I’m following the Wildlife trust 30days wild challenge.
As this is an example, not an entry hopefully it is acceptable that I have based mine on a sweater shirt I used to have, which I think read:
A badger is so bashful,
He likes to wear a mask,
Across his eyes
Shy badger wears mask across eyes.
How does it work?
